Abstract: The short term benefits of applying whole genome selection to sheep breeding programs are estimated. If breeding values of all objective traits can be predicted with accuracy equal to the square root of heritability, genomic selection could increase overall response for a terminal sire index by about 30%, and a fine wool merino index by about 40%. Response is relatively more increased for those traits that are normally not measured on breeding animals.
