Short summary
This study is focused on the development of the inbreeding coefficients in Zwartbles sheep in the Czech Republic. The effect of inbreeding on meat yield was investigated. There was a statistically significant increase in inbreeding coefficient between 1997–2021. A statistically significant effect of the inbreeding coefficient on weight at 100 d, musculus longissimus dorsi (MLD) thickness, and back fat thickness was found. A negative relationship between inbreeding and meat yield was found.
