Bayesian analysis of calving ease scores and birth weights

Abstract

In a typical two stage procedure, breeding value prediction for calving ease in a threshold model is conditioned on estimated genetic and residual covariance matrices. These covariance matrices are traditionally estimated using analytical approximations. A Gibbs sampler for making full Bayesian inferences about fixed effects, breeding values, thresholds and… (More)
