Accurate prediction of breeding values is of great importance for animal improvement programmes. The prediction of breeding values requires knowledge of the magnitude of the variances and covariances of random effects. This paper gives a short review of methods of estimation of genetic variance parameters, contrasting analytical estimates with iterative and sampling based methods.
