[en] One of the most important theoretical assumptions of methods used to assess genetic values is that all available information has to be considered simultaneously to obtain unbiased estimates. However, the widespread international exchange of genetic material and, more recently, the important development of the genomic selection lead to the coexistence of different genetic evaluations. Therefore, the blending of the different sources of information is necessary to achieve better prediction. Integration of external information into genetic evaluations by a Bayesian procedure can partially resolve the problem under some assumptions. Results from such a method that also avoids double counting among external animals are highly similar to those from a joint evaluation.
