    I've tried all the search keywords I could think of and I can't find this information now. Should have saved it when I first found it. Anyway, I was wanting to know how to figure out what percentage of a breed a sheep has. If I have a 50% awassi/25% east friesian/25%karakul and I mate to a 50% awassi/50% east friesian what is the offspring going to be and what is the mathematical formula to figure it out?
    Thanks in advance.
