This video demonstrates how to rank prospective matings with the Extended Edition to minimize inbreeding in the resultant offspring.

This is also covered in the longer video 'Ranking Prospective Matings In Depth' Play Video

This video also demonstrates how to use a matrix (grid) to view the prospective matings using colour coding of the rankings. This form of display can be used with all the mate ranking methods.

There is also a separate video which you are recommended to watch first that explains about the test data and how to set up a breeding pool.
