Summary. Currently, the main breeding trendof cattle is the realization of genetic potential through complete feed and improved technology of keeping. The aim of the work was to establish the relationship of milk productivity and some economically useful traits and to determine the degree of influence of the genotype of bulls on the productive indicators of progeny. Improving the genetic qualities of breeding stock, the main role is played by sires. This article presents a comparative description of milk productivity of sires in the context of three lines: Reflection Sovering, Vis Back Ideal, Montwick Chieftain in terms of breeding farm «Bek +»of Fedorovsky District, Kostanay region, Republic of Kazakhstan. High milk production of Holstein animals is closely related to the genetic characteristics of animals; where the maximum milking yield was shown by the daughters of sires  of Reflection Sovering 501Н8778 line with an average milk yield of daughters 8911.42±235 kg; 501H10525-8846,24±151 kg; USA64552203-8752,76±168 kg; USA 66591025-8561.46±251 kg of milk, with fat and protein content of milk in the range of 3.21-3.38 %; 2.12-2.32 %, respectively. The relationship between the quantitative content of somatic cells in 1 ml of milk and milking yield is revealed. With an increase in average daily milk yield from 10 to 25 kg, the number of somatic cells reduced significantly, with a yield of more than 25 kg, an increase in the growth of somatic cells in milk is again observed. The data obtained allow us to recommend animals of the Reflection Sovering line to increase the quantitative indicators of milk productivity, since an abundant yield made it possible to obtain the highest yield of milk fat and protein from the cows of this line.
