Procedures including data structure and models for computing genetic evaluations across breeds and international borders are reviewed. Problems of animal identification across international borders will have to be solved by the organizations controlling the data if International Cattle Evaluation is to become a reality. The incorporation of crossbred data into current National Cattle Evaluation programs, along with the sharing of data by breed organizations with each other, will have to occur before large scale across breed mixed model analyses can be conducted.
