Sheep and Goat - farming still have great economic importance and opportunities for further development in Serbia. One million ha of Yugoslav meadows surface are in Serbia. Majority of meadows are situated in mountainous regions far away from life environment pollutants. 328.750 sheep are property of Vojvodina, 407.000 of Kosovo, make a total of 2.575.000 sheep in possession of Serbia, 4-6% of the total are property of government farms 3% are in cooperation and 93% on private farms. 4.000 goats are bred on government farms. 23.0001 of lamb and sheep meat was delivered from this regions of Serbia which made 37,7% of the total Yugoslav production. Yugoslavia exported 2.327.000 kg in kind on foreign markets, and 40% of that amount was from Serbia. Mountainous region of Serbia, according to our investigation, is a perspective producer of biologically more valuable food with great possibilities of using the existing comparative advantages.
U brdsko-planinskim područjima Srbije nisu dovoljno iskorišćene komparativne prednosti za proizvodnju biološki zdravijeg mesa i proizvoda (mleko, sir) ovčarstva i kozarstva. Efekat u proizvodnji jagnjećeg mesa na brdsko-planinskim terenima neuporedivo je veći u virtemberške rase i meleza pramenke i virtemberga u poređenju s autohtonom pramenkom.
