Short summary
This study's aim is to investigate the polymorphism of Simmental cattle raised on a private farm in terms of the CSN3 gene locus from milk proteins by using the PCR-RFLP method and to reveal the distribution of genotype and allele frequencies of animals in terms of related gene locations. In addition, the relationship between genotypes and some performance characteristics is investigated.
