In this paper, we propose some mating rules which avoid high rates of inbreeding in closed populations. We deal with small populations, made up of a few hundreds of females, owned .by various breeders and splitted into small flocks. Although the methods could be extended so as to take aecount of artificial insemination and of selection, our propositions are chiefly relevant to local breeds reared under traditional conditions
