Multibreed genetic evaluation models allow the prediction of animal breeding values in a population of animals of various breed compositions. The structure of this type of model depends on the traits to be evaluated and the multibreed population to be analyzed, and they eventually yield additive and nonadditive animal genetic values, which allow more precise selection decisions and mating plans.
