Contributions of Bayesian methods to animal breeding are reviewed briefly. Emphasis is placed on using Gibbs sampling to arrive at marginal posterior distributions needed for making Bayesian inferences. Improper posteriors can occur due to improper priors employed or insufficient data. Caution should be exercised when improper priors are used.
