In this article, we propose the stochastic restricted Liu predictors by augmenting the stochastic restrictions to the linear mixed models. The Liu biasing parameter is selected via generalized cross validation (GCV) criterion. Comparisons between the stochastic restricted Liu estimators and several other estimators, namely the BLUE, the mixed and Liu estimators are made through the mean square error matrix criterion. Finally, a numerical example and a simulation study are done to show the performance of the estimators.
