Kinship Analysis

Kinship Analysis data updated 19/8/2018

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 to use kinship analysis to guide you as to a suitable 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 helping to keep it in balance.

However, at the current time, as can be seen by the percentages, 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 between the bulls in terms of their relatedness to each other. So, if a bull is placed lower down the list, this should not be a deterrent to using him if he is suitable in other respects. Factors such as conformation, temperament, size and type, as well as number of progeny and relatedness to the cows to be served, are more important at this moment than position in the kinship analysis.

In the interests of genetic diversity as many different bulls as possible should be used. However, this is on the proviso that they conform to the breed standard and are free of faults and undesirable attributes. If considering keeping a bull calf entire please seek advice as to his genetics and physical characteristics. Not all bull calves will be suitable to use as bulls and a poor choice can reverberate through the small gene pool. Regarding matching a bull with a cow it is generally desirable that the resulting calf has a low COI (Coefficients of Inbreeding).

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 a part in determining which bull to use. Seven of the AI bulls are available through the SCHBS Semen Store. Information about them can be found under the Semen Store tab on the Home Page. Further bulls are available through the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

Please note that kinship is not the only consideration in choosing a suitable bull. The breed analysis reports prepared by Lawrence Alderson should also be used and provide an overall picture of the genetic health of the breed. They can be found under the Breeding tab on the home page.

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