Table 1 Relative weightsafor n phenotypic observations on the individual, p observations in twice the halfsib progeny mean with heritability 0.25 and repeatability 0.6, or deregressed EBV with reliability r2 for varying values of c, the proportion of genetic variation for which genotypes cannot account

  1. aWeights are diagonal elements of the inverse of the scaled residual variance-covariance matrix (with the scalar factored out before inversion). Weights are relative to the information content of an individual observation with c = 0.
