Kinship Analysis

Kinship Analysis data updated 27/3/2017.

The Kinship Analysis below comprises two lists of bulls. The first list is the Live Bulls list, which shows all registered living bulls in the breed, ranked according to their relatedness to each other. The bull at the top of the list is the one with the least relatedness to the others in the list, meaning that his genetics are least represented in the live bull population. If you are looking for a bull for your cows it would normally be preferable to use bulls closer to the top of the list so that their less-used genetics are recycled back into the gene pool, thus keeping it in balance. However, at the current time, the difference between the bull at the top of the list and the bull at the bottom of the list is small, meaning that there is not a great difference in the relatedness of all the bulls to each other, so a bull's position on the list should not be a deterrent to using him if he meets requirements in other respects. Factors such as conformation, temperament, size and type, as well as relatedness to the cows to be served are more important at this moment. Regarding matching a bull with a cow it is desirable that the resulting calf has a low COI (Coefficients of Inbreeding). 

The final column, headed "Weighted", gives the number of progeny of the bull. Each male calf registered is weighted equivalent to ten female calves to reflect the larger number of progeny he can leave in a lifetime. It is suggested that, all other things being equal, it is preferable to use a bull with fewer progeny. Note that progeny numbers in the last column will be inflated if a bull has registered sons that have not become breeders. 

Note that the kinship analysis list changes as bulls are born and die. A bull will move up and down the list depending on the number of bulls related to him in the list at the same time.

The second list is the Live Bulls and Available AI Bulls list. This list has been compiled so that breeders contemplating using AI can check and see how the AI bulls, both dead and alive, rank within the current population of live bulls. The Status column indicates which bulls are the AI bulls and whether they are alive or dead. Once again, the difference between the bull on the top of the list and the bull on the bottom of the list is small, so factors other than a bull's position on the list will play an important part in determining which bull to use. 

The data for this Kinship Analysis page has been reproduced in collaboration with Shetland Cattle Breeders Association.
