Abstract

The topic "Estimation of parameters and breeding vailues" is quite general, allowing for a wide range of problems and analytical procedures to be addressed. To the animal breeder the necessity of obtaining good estimates of population parameters and prediction of breeding values is obvious. However, the best approach in analysis often is not as obvious nor is the correct interpretation of tne results obtained, Dr. Jay L. Lush, in his Notes, considers the concept of parameter.estimation as two components-- first, a statistical component whereby one obtained solutions, and, second, the interpretation for use of the solutions obtained.
