The purpose of these studies was to assess the influence of Russian Black Pied cows’ body types on their productive longevity. The studies were conducted on the basis of enterprises of the Sverdlovsk region specializing in breeding of Russian Black Pied cattle. Most heifers were of the complex class “Excellent” (36.0%), less of “Satisfactory” (6.0%). The second largest class was “Good with a plus” (28.0%). A complex class of animals affects their milk production. When selecting first-calf heifers, taking into account the body type, it seems possible to obtain animals of a conformation complex class not lower than “Good”; to obtain at least 5000-5500 kg of good quality milk with a mass fraction of fat of 3.85-3.88% and protein fraction of 3.06-3.08% from cows of 305 days of lactation, depending on the potential of the breeding herd; to increase the duration of production use up to 4.3-6.8 lactations; to increase the level of lifelong yield to 29637.0-38126.8 kg of milk.
