Mean, standard deviation (SD), minimum and maximum values of genomic and pedigree-based kinship estimated within the pairs father-offspring (n = 645), full sibs (n = 502) and half sibs (n = 5,756).

1Analysis performed using information from 6–10 generations recorded on paper pedigree; 2Analysis performed using all markers (n = 28,740); 3Analysis performed using only markers in linkage equilibrium (LE) within each line (9579, 7984 and 10235 LE markers for L1, L2 and L3, respectively).
