A profit index combining transmitting abilities for yield and angularity, udder depth, foot angle and teat length
is developed for selection towards a goal comprising milk (£-0.03 /kg), fat (£0.60 /kg), protein (£4.04 /kg) and
longevity (£5.52 /% of cows surviving till lactation 4). Sensitivity analysis showed that the index developed was robust towards changes in the assumptions made.
