Supplemental File 03 v2.0.0 (free)

Updated July 2, 2023

This file is only for FlockFiler Lite.

If you need these calculations for FlockFiler Pro, use Supplemental 04.


This is the calculation that will be built into the next update to FlockFiler. It is provided here to give early access to users who have very complicated pedigrees.

Download and Installation Instructions

Quit FlockFiler if it is currently running.

Download the and unzip the file: FlockFiler_Supplemental_03.zip ( kB).

Put the file "FlockFiler_Supplemental_03.ffp12" into your "FlockFiler32" or "FlockFiler64" folder. It should sit next to your FlockFilerCentral.ffp12, FlockFilerLiteData.ffp12, and FlockFilerProData.ffp12 files in the "FlockFiler32" or "FlockFiler64" folder.

Start FlockFiler Lite or FlockFiler Pro. The supplemental file will be found automatically when FlockFiler is started.

Navigate to the sheep form.

A new menu, "Supplemental", is displayed.

Browse to the set of records for which you want to calculate the inbreeding coefficients.

Choose "File 03" from the Supplemental menu.

In the FlockFiler_Supplemental_03 window choose "Calc" to calculate the Wright's coefficient of inbreeding for the Found Set of records in FlockFiler Lite.
