Abstract: Multistage dairy cattle breeding schemes consisting of 4 selection paths were optimised in order to maximise the genetic gain per year with regard to genomic selection on 2 genomically estimated breeding values differing in costs and accuracy. Results clearly show that the selection of bull dams is the major field of application for low-density genotyping but also emphasise the selection of sires to be of continuously highest importance for the generation of the genetic gain irrespective of increasing costs for high-density genotyping.
