Coefficient of inbreeding
Did you know that the BSBA Babydoll CloudLines registry software lets you look up extended pedigrees and automatically calculates a Coefficeint of Inbreeding (COI) for each registered sheep? The calculations use all the pedigree information in the registry. That's much more data than an individual breeder would typically have access to.
Our registry also has a handy tool where you can enter a proposed sire and dam to calculate the COI for their lambs.
