Cover for Best linear unbiased prediction of breeding value: multivariate animal models.

Multivariable best linear unbiased prediction (BLUP) involving traits affected by the same effects (equal design matrices) and situations in which different traits are affected by different factors (nonidentical design matrices) are discussed in this chapter. As an illustration, the sex effects for ...
