Livestock gives the "SOS" alarm/ The number of cattle in Albania decreases, milk production decreases

Livestock gives the "SOS" alarm/ The number of cattle in Albania

The livestock sector in Albania continues to shrink from year to year, where despite the financial support schemes it is not able to recover. The official data of the Institute of Statistics show that during 2023, the number of cattle is recorded at nearly 263 thousand, with a decrease of nearly 35 thousand heads compared to the previous year, this gap that deepens even further compared to previous years . If we compare over a period of 10 years, the number of cows has decreased by 235,000, or in other words, it has halved.

Likewise, the number of small animals at the end of 2023 is recorded at nearly 1.84 million heads, with a decrease of nearly 250 thousand heads compared to the previous year, where the highest contraction is observed in sheep heads. Since 2013, the sector has lost 890 thousand small heads. While the number of poultry heads is recorded at 7 million heads, with an increase of about 200 thousand heads compared to the previous year, although with a decrease compared to other years. Compared to 2013, the sector lost 1.9 million heads.

Beekeeping has been the only voice in the sector that has performed positively, marking an increase in the number of beehives to 519 during 2023, and almost double in a decade, Scan reports. The reduction of livestock to this extent has caused the production of milk in the country to drop drastically, from 970 tons in 2022, to 900 tons in 2023, as well as the production of live weight meat has dropped to 135 thousand tons, from nearly 140 thousand tons produced in 2022. Despite this, despite the decrease in the number of birds, their yield seems to have been higher because the number of eggs produced increased by 128 million eggs, recording a total of to 894 million harvests in 2023, and on the other hand, honey production has increased by 300 tons, being recorded at 5,600 tons.
