Genomic prediction is an important tool for genetic evaluation of cattle, but Factors such as the size of the reference population and the density of the SNP marker panel used for prediction affects the accuracy. This thesis explores different strategies and models for scharing of data across countries and breeds in order to increase the size of the reference data, and the efficiency of using genotype imputation methods to increase the marker density. Results show that closely related breeds the accuracy of genomic prediction and imputation can be increased by polling reference populations, whereas for distantly related breeds a more sophitcated prediction model is advantegeous for certain traits
