How to calculate the best breeding animals for the future? The Mean kinship module can help you with this! Mean kinship is the average relationship of an animal with the entire population. The mean kinship is a benchmark for how much an animal can contribute to the inbreeding in the future of the breed. Animals with a low mean kinship are genetically important and are interesting to use for breeding. Animals with a higher mean kinship have already left their DNA-print in the population.


Who is already using the module?

The module is used by, among others, “The Dutch Schapendoes” (TDS). With this module, the TDS wants to prevent a problem of excessive inbreeding increase within the breed. If you do not take control measures, this problem will automatically arise in a closed population and the association wants to prevent that as well as possible.

What do I have to do to start using the module?

Before you can start using the module, you will have to take a number of steps to set up the administration for this. We have made an explanation for you that you can follow.

Are there any restrictions on use?

The module can perform mean kinship calculations for 1 breed group. If your organization registers 2 or more breed groups, please contact us. We will make you an offer without engagement.
