This presentation provides an overview of the results from the projects "The optimal cow" and "SOBcows". The aim of "The optimal cow" is to derive economic values for breeding goal traits in four different production systems, among them an organic production system. The aim of "SOBcows" is to enhance the size and the profitability of the organic dairy production by adapting the breeding material to organic production circumstances and by indicating sustainable methods for sustainable niche production based on animals with specific genetic characteristics
