I've just had a look and can confirm that I have a heifer in this family that is 19.33% inbred. She is good, not the best, only second, to her dam's dam's AI calf, I am approaching r.n.reed's and the Canadian's levels here!
I have gone completely outcross this year, used two Irish bulls I found on a trip there in 2007!
Just to put this into perspective, I have two registered herds, which I run separately, with different objectives. I do use walking bulls across the herds, mostly, but tend to err on the side of the smaller herd when it comes to natural service as I don't have the space to run them completely separately.
