The Grassroots online Registry launched a new feature this week which offers the ability to check for common ancestors in potential mattings.
Called ‘Check Mate’ it can be found in the Manage my Animals Menu (top right of the screen)
Select any male and one of your own females. Click on calculate and you will be offered the four generation pedigree of the prospective offspring with common ancestors highlighted. Common ancestors who appear in the first or second generation are in orange, in the third generation are yellow and the fourth are green.
The registry can still offer full kinship analysis, as they have always done on request, but Check Mate is a quick and easy way to check potential matings
