The relationships of 9 blood group systems and 2 blood protein poly- morPh^-ams with breeding values for mastitis, cysts and general disease resistance were examined in a material of 744 progeny tested dairy bulls. There were no significant effects of the markers on the mastitis incidence, but several associations to the other traits.
