Abstract

To make full use of repeated records of relatives is very important to estimate breeding  value more accurately , especially in China . This paper induces a set of absorbing equations , with which the repeated records of many relatives of breeding animals may be absorbed in the records of themselves , instead of establishing one genetic effect equation and one maternal effect equation for each dam ,.so that can greatly decrease the orders of matrix , and to estimate breeding value with BLUP more accurately can fulfil with a mini computer.
