Multistage selection based on the covariates of the breeding value is studied in non-normal large populations. Expressions for expectation and variance of the target variable are given for retained sub population in the case of lognormal, skew normal and pareto distributions. Numerical illustration for optimum level of cullings for fixed overall intensity of selection is discussed.
