There is no research regarding economic effects of genetic improvement for dairy cattlein Serbia. Therefore, the goal of this paper is to determine economic values for variousproduction traits (milk yield, milk fat content and proteins content) in dairy production, aswell as to determine total economic selection index. The research is based on data whichinclude 9,516 lactations of 4,893 milking cows from 7 farms. Data were collected duringthe period 2004 – 2012. Authors used sensitivity analysis and partial budgeting approach todetermine changes in revenues caused by variations of particular production traits. It wasdetermined that within economic selection index the most important trait is milk yield, whilevalues for other traits are almost negligible. On the other hand, it is expected that importanceof certain traits will be changed after Serbian accession to the European Union.
