A breeding programme depends foremost on the definition of the breeding objective. The reliability of estimated genetic merit will be associated with the judicious choice of selection criteria, the accuracy of the recorded information, the model used to describe the biological processes relating the breeding objective and selection criteria and the prediction methodology used. Effective genetic improvement will further depend on the presentation of the processed information and its rate of adoption by the industry.
