Abstract

Algorithms for evaluation of breeding (genetic) values of Belarusian Harness, Russian Draft and Russian Trotter breeds of horses by quantitative traits of own performance (development, expert evaluation of selected traits) of horses and progeny were developed. The theoretical basis for establishment of breeding value of horses by quantitative traits are the linear statistical models, based on which the breeding value is expressed by deviation of trait value of the evaluated animals from the average determined for the breed in our country.

The practical significance of the developed system is to improve reliability of horses evaluation and accelerate it for 2–3 years.
