The role of inheritance in cattle extremity diseases is revealed. The inheritance coefficients of this character are 0.014 and 0.200. The suggestion has been put forward the polygene character in the inheritance of the extremity disease resistance. To improve breeding efficiency the complex evaluation of the gene pool in herds, families and sires is proposed. Phenotypic and genetic variation in the velocity of abrading hoof hom has been studied as well as its moisture absorbing capacity.
