## Not run: 
  # a simple MCMCglmm model
  data(PlodiaPO)
  m <- MCMCglmm(PO ~ 1, random= ~ FSfamily, data=PlodiaPO, pr=TRUE, verbose=FALSE)

  # only extract average fixed effects
  head(ranef(m, use = "mean"))

  # histogram of posterior samples of fixed effects
  hist(ranef(m)[1, ])
  # matches the mean
  rowMeans(ranef(m)[1:6, ])
