Abstract

Potentials for development of organic animal farming at Pester area are discussed in this paper. In this area two basic climatic types are present: mild continental climate and high altitude mountain climate with extremely cold winters. Geographic and relief position of this area represents very good terrain for intensive animal farming and fruit production. Main branches that should be focused on are production of cow, goat and sheep milk, mutton and lamb as well as production of apples, plums, berries, bee keeping and fisheries.

Preserved and healthy environment of Pester area is ideal for agriculture, especially for production of healthy food, recreational and rural tourism. Very famous products coming from that area are: Sjenica mutton, Pester cheese, paprika in full fat milk skim, smoked ham, stelja and sudzuk (traditional products). Rural area such as Pester highland represents unused resource for development of agriculture and tourism.
