Summary

The aim of this study is to quantify preferences of Danish dairy farmers for breeding goal traits and associations to herd characteristics and production system (organic versus conventional farming). The main conclusions are that: 1) heterogeneity exists within farmers’ preferences and clear groups of farmers are found for all breeds, 2) some herd characteristics can be linked to farmer groups, and 3) production system can be linked to farmer groups.
