Knowledge of genetic parameters is required for prediction of estimated breeding values.
Visitors to Cornell's Estimated Breeding Value database can check registered purebreds and certain mixes' hip and elbow quality and that of their relatives, and print or download 25 records at a time.
Since the accuracies of estimated breeding value can vary with different numbers of test records, pedigree information, and heritability, after classifying sows with or without records for the total number of piglets born, the accuracies of breeding values obtained from BLUP and ssGBLUP were estimated.
yield were closely correlated with the estimated breeding values for TD milk yield.
Some phenotypic traits are difficult and costly to measure, resulting in low accuracy of estimated breeding values (Badke et al.
A Pearson's correlation between the true breeding value and estimated breeding value was computed to check the accuracy of the BLUP estimation.
The standard approach for using QTL information in selection schemes is based on a simple index: I = [alpha]+EBV (Falconer and Mackay, 1996; Soller, 1978), where a is an estimate of the breeding value for the identified or marked QTL of the individual and EBV is an estimated breeding value of the polygenic effects of the individual.
Average estimated breeding value and maternal breeding value of the animals born in 1993 were set to zero as a base group.
