Abstract

The result of the methodology is a new approach in the genetic evaluation of beef cattle. Determining the reliability of individual predictions allows producers greater options when selecting individuals for breeding. The methodology outlines the steps for calculating reliability, describes the parameter file, which is an essential part of every calculation. It also describes how the evaluation results are analyzed. Each individual has now determined the prediction of breeding values based on input data and related information of individuals.
