Short summary
A Bayesian and REML analyses were used on Tunisian dairy cattle data. Genetic parameters for 305-day milk, fat, and protein yields were estimated. Heritability estimates by using Bayesian method ranged from 0.187 to 0.273, and slightly higher than the corresponding REML. Large genetic correlations (> 0.88) among milk, fat, and protein yields were found for the two methods. This study suggests that results from both methods were reasonably similar to suggest both methods can be used.
