Animal husbandry

Animal husbandry is the most important branch of agriculture, with the key industry being dairy farming. As of 31 December 2006 there were 245,000 head of cattle in Estonia (including 108,900 dairy cows) as well as 341,200 pigs, 61,500 sheep and goats and 1,592,200 head of poultry.
People obtain milk, meat, wool, leather and fertiliser from animals.
Support for animal husbandry is mainly provided to those involved in agricultural activities such as the rearing of cattle, suckler cows or ewes and/or those with a milk quota.
Investment support enables the buildings and feed stores needed for cattle, pig, sheep, goat, horse or poultry husbandry to be constructed and the necessary equipment to be obtained.
