Abstract

In Europe, about 45% of local cattle breeds are categorized “at risk”. In Europe, member states may provide incentive payments to support ‘local breeds in danger of being lost to farming’. However, there is a general aim that incentive payments should not be permanent and making local breeds (self) sustainable should be promoted. The aim of the EC co-funded project EURECA was to get a better understanding of the breed (self) sustainability and the factors affecting it in Europe, which may help in defining policies and strategies.
