Dear jarrod
I have to admit that I have never fitted these but I would imagine that
you could as shown in the ASReml-R manual page 58 section 5.4. As for
correlating additive and maternal I would think this is also possible
using us(link(~ped(Calf) + ped(Dam))) but I dont think this has been
tested or requested. Hence I am ccing this to David Butler, the author of
ASReml-R to check the syntax and the use of ped() within link()

Arthur and I are in the UK at the moment and so DBs response will be in Oz

warm regards

Maternal Genetic effects in ASReml-R

Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to fit maternal genetic effects in ASReml-R yet? If
so does any one have any example code they could show me (preferably
with the covariance between additive and maternal genetic effects
