THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTION OF AUTOCHTHONOUS DAIRY PRODUCTS AND POSSIBILITIES TO INCREASE AUTOCHTHONOUS DAIRY PRODUCTS PRODUCTION OBSERVED AS FACTORS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF ŠTRPCE
Security situation in Kosovo and Metohija and traffic circumstances – in other words - distance between the municipality of Štrpce and bigger consumer centres in Serbia and other factors restrict milk procession in the existing diary plant and on agricultural husbandries mostly into durable white cheese and cheese brine. The procession of milk into cheese and dairy products with short term durability is significantly less performed, because of the above mentioned reasons.
Within this paper we presented available natural resources and human potential and also did analysis of the development in the number of heads of cattle and the analysis of the quantity of autochthonous dairy products during the period since 1998 to 2008. Based on the data and analysis, the conclusion was made that the increase in the production of autochthonous dairy products in the municipality of Štrpce would contribute agricultural development on the whole and better employment of the local population. The performed analyses were based on modest financial resources, but on the more efficient participation of Serbian institutions as well, with significant expert and scientific support.
