The experiment was carried out on the 37 Red-and-White heifers. Thyroxine (T^) and triiodothyronine (T, ) were measured in blood serum by specific double antibody radioimmunoassay. Blood samples were taken at about 90,270,450,540 days age and during the mating period also. The results indicate a positive correlation of concentration T, in blood serum at day of age with milk yield r=0,337.This relationship in cows producing 4048 kg of milk was r=0,686 but in cows producing 2963 kg of milk was not significant r=0,035.There were not significant correlation between the level of T, in blood serum and the future milk yield.
