Payments for the conservation of animal genetic resources in agriculture
Financial incentives for the conservation of local breeds are intended to make breeding and keeping more economical. Fixed payments per livestock unit (LU) are common. A study from Slovenia was pub-lished in March in the journal “Animals”, 2021, 11, which examined how state subsidies for the conser-vation of animal genetic resources affect population numbers and how farmers react.
