In more precise language we want the expected value of our statistic to equal the parameter. The term best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) comes from application of the general notion of unbiased and efficient estimation in the context of linear estimation. The result is an unbiased estimate of the breeding value.

These are based on deriving best linear unbiased estimators and predictors under a model conditional on selection of certain linear functions of random variables jointly distributed with the random variables of the usual linear model.

We now seek to find the “best linear unbiased estimator” (BLUE). The various estimation concepts/techniques like Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE), Minimum Variance Unbiased Estimation (MVUE), Best Linear Unbiased Estimator (BLUE) – all falling under the umbrella of classical estimation– require assumptions/knowledge on second order statistics (covariance) before the estimation technique can be applied.
