Prediction of breeding values when variances are not known

Abstract

The joint distribution of breeding values and of records usually depends on unknown parameters such as means, variances and covariances in the case of the multivariate normal distribution. If the objective of the analysis is to make selection decisions, these parameters should be considered as « nuisances ». If the values of the parameters are unknown, the… (More)
