General Status and Long Term Trend Analysis of Sheep and Goat Husbandry in the Eastern Anatolian Region of Turkey

Besir Koc and Melike Ceylan

Abstract:
This study presents a study of the current status and 15 year trend of sheep and goat husbandry in the Eastern Anatolian Region of Turkey. In this study, a simple index, chain index and least squares annual growth rate of the trend line method is used. The region is known as the livestock center of Turkey. In 2005, there were more than 10 million sheep and more than 1 million goats in the region. Accordingly, the share of the region in sheep and goat number is quite high with 36%. Forty percent of the total sheep in Turkey is kept in this region. However, the long term trend analysis found that number of animals has gradually fallen, resulting in a negative effect on the livestock sector. The reasons for this decline in all factor levels within the study may be that the region has security problems, pasture and meadows are not used or only have a limited use.
