Animalplan is an integrated set of data processing packages that meets the pedigree and performance recording requirements of many animal species in a unified way. The package offers much flexibility in terms of specification of breeding objectives, the traits to be recorded and presentation of reports. Technical aspects discussed include breeding objectives, trait adjustment for non-genetic effects using standard or flock/herd specific adjustments, prediction of breeding values using selection index techniques, restricting a trait to zero genetic change and the estimation of direct and maternal effects.
