Global Pedigree

Post Number:#1  Unread postby caroline » Mon Dec 07, 2020 8:18 am


We keep track of our herd on-line at globalpedigree.com
We have records going back at least ten generations on all our rabbits. We have been very happy with all the information that we can store there (birthdate, color genetics, weight, photographs, breeding history, multi-generation pedigree, and more) & are even happier that we will be less likely to “lose” it from a computer malfunction like we did a few years ago. We can arrange for a free month’s subscription for anyone.
Here's the referral link:
https://www.globalpedigree.com/index.ph ... 0061c950a5

That way you can track your herd & view information & photos of the over 1,400 rabbits that have been in our herd,
as well as more than 183,000 other bunnies!

There's a monthly subscription fee? How much is it? Do you get to keep a backup copy of the information on your own computer or is it all hosted off in the web somewhere?

Backup copies of important information is always good to be kept in multiple locations. Hmm, I'll go back up the herd database now, to the USB hard drive. It's been a couple months since that's been done.

There is AN ANNUAL subscription fee. it is $20. Which seems totally worth it to me.
2 years for $35.
I paid the lifetime fee back when it was $75 and have NEVER regretted it.
It's now $125, which might seem a little steep, and if it helps you to sell a couple more rabbits...
I download the 7 generation pedigrees for all my breeding stock to my computer so if the site ever goes away I have them

I have been a member for the last 8 years and I just discovered a feature that I had not even known was there:

I can select two rabbits to look at a possible breeding between them
It will give me the likely %age of all the possible color varieties, based on the genotype that I have entered for my rabbits.
Since color genetics is one of my FAVORITE THINGS to obsess about with my rabbits
This has given me PLENTY to do while I am staying home these days
And rabbits quick gestation makes the outcome come pretty quickly :)

Jeremy, the site owner has been so friendly and helpful.
He used to have a place where he answered question on the fly when the site was MUCH smaller
Now that there are over 8000 registered users, that has become unmanageable but he still responds to email
and when I run into any snafus, he fixes them pretty quickly.
I REALLY appreciate his service.

I love being able to browse the other rabbits on the site. I usually only look at the Rex, but sometimes I look for unusual colors, whatever the breed. It's fun. And I have used the contact feature to get in touch with other breeders

Being able to access other breeders is huge! Finding new breeding stock can be difficult if there's no breeders nearby.

They allow access to the list of breeders without subscribing, that's a nice thing. Interesting list for English angora breeders, not a lot of names I've seen before. They also allow folks to search for hybrids, that's an interesting feature.

So I just spent a VERY satisfying time looking at my data on Global Pedigree
I joined in 2013 and since that time I have used it to track ALL the rabbits that I have bred
I enter the breedings and it tells me when the litter is due.
I enter the date that the doe kindles and then when I wean & tattoo the kits
there is a pretty easy way to enter all the kit data: variety, weight, tattoo, picture, etc.
So I have been tracking my herd pretty completely.
This morning I decided to check on all the various color varieties that I have had in my herd
during that 6 and a half years
(I took a year off of breeding during that time because I had to be away the year my mother died
and my rabbits went to live with another breeder while I was gone)
It was pretty fun to be able to have GP show me the following information
variety total BUCKS DOES

Tri-color, Blue/Fawn 5 2 3
TOTALS 1433 615 820

(I couldn't figure out how to insert the table so the numbers aren't lined up exactly :(

I was really interested to see how MANY MORE does than bucks have been born in my herd.
I have been pretty good about entering EVERYTHING, even the ones I harvest,
so that I get a complete picture.
I wonder if others see the same thing in theirs.
It makes sense. I have often read that the males are more delicate, etc. so don't survive as well
I never saw it in black and white before though :)
