A review of the national genetic evaluation for dairy cattle production traits is presented. Some of the history of the development of the records processing is discussed as it relates to the development of the evaluation system and the nature and quality of the data available. The model and iteration techniques are covered in general. Genetic and phenotypic trends estimated from the evaluations are shown for the ten year period of 1983 to 1992.
