BARRIERS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF DOMESTIC ORGANIC ANIMAL FARMING

In connection with putting emphasis on the protection of the nature, the food-safety, and the differentiation of the product, organic farming becomes sustainable alternative for some of the actors in the supply chain (stakeholders). Unfortunately the domestic organic production lost on importance after the EU accession which can be driven by numerous root causes, factors. The aim of the study is to give an insight to the problems of the Hungarian organic animal farming. According to the data of the Biokontroll Hungária Ltd. only 5% of the farmers deal with organic livestock breeding. 60 % of the organic land – which is controlled by the Biokontroll – are meadow, pasture, extensive lawn, and fallow. On the basis of cattle, sheep and goat stock the animal unit per hectare is 0.2, however the desired value should be 1-1,5. 75 % of the total livestock is cattle. We sent questionnaires to the organic animal keepers and we can state that they produce in small measures but their farming structure is highly diversified. These animal products have higher added-value than in other sectors and the products are sold directly to the consumers.
