Abstract In this study 240 cattle keepers in four regions in Southwestern Uganda were interviewed and a hypothetical choice experiment was conducted. Each choice-set consisted of 2 profiles with 6 attributes with 2 levels. The attributes for cows were horns, coat colour, size, fertility, milk yield and price. The attributes for bulls were horns, colour, muscularity, temperament, dam's performance and price. Each person got 6 choice-sets for bulls and 6 for cows. Differences in the production systems were reflected in the varying selection criteria. In cows production traits were very important and in bulls information from the dam and temperament.
