Turkey: Livestock and Products Annual

Despite continuing challenges facing the Turkish livestock industry, the number of cattle in Turkey is estimated to grow 6 percent in 2020 to 18.1 million animals due to the implementation of favorable new government subsidies and the continuation of an aggressive import policy that brings large numbers of live animals into the country. In 2020, Turkey’s imports of live animals, mostly from Brazil, Uruguay, and EU countries, is forecast to increase by 5 percent to 1.05 million head.
