The casein genes have been of special interest regarding association with production characters. This
paper describes the genetic variation in a microsatellite in the K-casein gene in different Danish breeds. A
total of 5 alleles was found in 92 unrelated animals from different beef and dairy cattle breeds. The beef
breeds showed a higher number of alleles than the dairy cattle indicating a loss of genetic variation in the
