The relationship and inbreeding are special concepts in animal breeding, for this reason, a free of charge VBA software was developed to calculate the coefficients of relationship and inbreeding in Microsoft Excel. The tabular method algorithm was implemented by using pedigree. The software was called as EasyNRM and verified with the inclusion of bull Comet's pedigree. Finally, the numerator relationship matrix was created and certified with the results of the literature. It would be beneficial for EasyNRM to be used by researchers and breeders in estimating the breeding values of animals. 

Hayvancılıkta akrabalık ve akrabalı yetiştirme ayrıcalıklı öneme sahip kavramlardır. Bu nedenle yaygın kullanılan Microsoft Excel ortamında adı geçen değerleri hesaplamak üzere ücretsiz ve özgün bir yazılım geliştirilmiştir. Programda soykütüğüne dayalı tablo yöntemi uygulanmıştır. Yazılım EasyNRM olarak adlandırılmış ve bu konuda kaynaklar tarafından bilinen Comet isimli boğanın pedigrisi ile denenmiştir. Sonuç olarak Excel sayfalarında paydan akrabalık matrisi ve akrabalı yetiştirme katsayıları hesaplanmış ve bu bulgular literatür ile teyit edilmiştir. Bu yazılımın damızlık değer tahmininde akrabalık ilişkilerini de dikkate almak isteyen araştırmacılar ve yetiştiriciler için yararlı olacağı kanaatine varılmıştır.
