Efficiency of each scenario was estimated considering the control of increments in the mean inbreeding of the herds, as follows: [DELTA][F.sub.t] = ([F.sub.t] - [F.sub.t-1])/(t - [F.sub.t-1]) in which t = generation number; and [F.sub.t] = mean inbreeding coefficient for generation t (WRIGHT, 1922).
The inbreeding coefficient increased across years at a rate of 0.09% per year.
Mean values of [F.sub.IS] (heterozygote deficit) were -0.515 for goat breeds and -0.431 for sheep breeds are low representing low inbreeding coefficient between breeds which is obvious from the home track distance of the studied breeds in contrast to the positive [F.sub.IS] values (high level of inbreeding) in Italian sheep breeds (55).
The locus Mzf61 showed the highest inbreeding coefficient (Fis=0.267) in Daxinganling population.
[F.sub.(null)] is inbreeding coefficient which is estimated in consideration of the presence of null alleles.
Estimates of the inbreeding coefficient ([F.sub.IS]) provide a ratio of observed heterozygosity against expected heterozygosity, but can be confounded by the presence of null alleles, which increases the number of homozygotes observed.
The inbreeding coefficient Ca is calculated using the following equation [14]
We calculated allelic richness, inbreeding coefficient ([F.sub.IS]), observed and expected heterozygosities, and tested for deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) and linkage disequilibrium (LD) for each microsatellite locus and population in FSTAT ver.
Parental marriage types were documented and inbreeding coefficient (F) was calculated in order to account for a likely recessive inheritance.
Our inbreeding coefficient with this system was between 5 and 5.6, which is very healthy.
