Recent developments in sire evaluation procedures are reviewed and relationships of several methods of sire evaluation are indicated. The Best Linear Unbiased Predictor (BLUP) approach is discussed. This gives a convenient framework for discussing recent advances in variance component estimation. Other topics discussed include selection and the use of relationships between animals. Areas needing further work are indicated; these include the estimation of genetic trend and evaluation methods for non-linear models.
