A primary task of animal breeders is to evaluate the genetic merit of potential breeding animals for selection purposes. This objective deals with both comparisons of groups of animals (populations, breeds or strains), and of individuals within a group. More efficient methods for prediction of breeding values have been developed and used during the last 10 years as capacity and efficiency of computers have increased.
