Animal husbandry, both in Greece and worldwide, is under constant threat, being at the center of multiple crises: wars, droughts, pandemics, successive economic crises. The increase in the prices of livestock inputs, especially after 2020, has tested and highlighted the strengths of the various livestock systems, bringing to the fore the need to make political decisions and choices, in the direction of the production of sufficient and quality products and also for the benefit of the producers and the development of the regional economy. For this purpose, we utilize the S.W.O.T analysis (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats) focusing on the prefecture of Evrytania in Central Greece.
