Hungary - Animal husbandry



Although animal husbandry is second only to cereal cultivation in agricultural production, the number and quality of animals are much lower than in neighboring countries. An inadequate supply of fodder is one of the chief deficiencies. At the end of 2001 there were 4,834,000 hogs, 1,129,000 sheep, 805,000 head of cattle, and 74,000 horses; poultry numbered 31,000,000. The 2001 output of livestock products was 1,136,000 tons (live weight) of meat, 2,143,000 tons of milk, and 3,900 tons of wool; egg production was 182,000 tons.
