The population of certain types of domestic animals, production of meat, milk and dairy products for a certain period, as well as the number of indigenous breeds of domestic animals are presented in this paper. The United Nations predict that the world's population will reach as much as 9.7 billion, and 11 billion by the end of the century. Agriculture needs well-adapted and developed livestock production because it is an important element of the agricultural production system, especially important in difficult conditions when farming in the agro-ecosystem cannot maintain and increase its productivity and adapt to changing circumstances, and is crucial for food security population. We have a tradition of raising domestic animals so that by making traditional products obtained from our indigenous breeds, we can greatly influence the development of ethno tourism, preservation of villages and traditions, i.e. cultural and historical heritage. Sustainable agricultural livestock production ...and the production of safe high quality food for human consumption is strategically important for every country. Agrobiodiversity and genetic resources for agriculture and food are one of the most important components of the overall biodiversity, which includes animals, plants and microorganisms that are necessary to maintain the key functions of the agro-ecosystem. Preservation and improvement of livestock, animal genetic diversity, preservation of indigenous and development of new breeds, preservation of genetically diverse populations provide society with a greater range of options to meet future challenges and development of agriculture. Animal genetic resources in animal husbandry represent all species, breeds and strains of domestic animals that originated on the territory of our country and have economic, scientific and cultural significance for our country.
