This result indicates that the effect of the increase in heritability on the increase in the reliability of the EBV of animals by using a cow's own record or progeny testing of bulls was greater than that on the decrease in reliability due to reduction of the variance of G from preselection.
Years ago, prior to the use of powerful computers and animal model statistics, progeny testing of an unproven bull took approximately five to six years.
Therefore, it raises a possibility for a further investigation on how they might contribute genetically to an indirect selection if targeted to a more efficient retail cut production, and thus could facilitate a selection earlier than the period of progeny testing.
This tremendous advancement provides double the current level of reliability and is getting closer to a favourable comparison with progeny testing which offers 85-95% reliability.
