Supplemental File 03 v1.0.1 (free)

Updated September 30, 2019


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.

(FlockFiler) Download the and unzip the file: FlockFiler_Supplemental_03.zip (0.1MB).

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 "Calculate for Lite" or "Calculate for Pro" to calculate the Wright's coefficient of inbreeding for the Found Set of records in FlockFiler Lite or FlockFiler Pro. Note that this will calculate the values for the Found Set and all ancestors of the sheep in the Found Set.

Click the "Close" button after the calculation finishes to return to "Calculate for Lite" or "Calculate for Pro" where the calculated values of the inbreeding coefficient are newly entered.

Notes on Usage

Step 5 works from the hardest to easiest pedigrees so the percentage indicator will speed up as this stage progresses.

Step 6 works from the easiest to hardest pedigrees so the percentage indicator will slow down as this stage progresses.
