The research carried out in August-September 1998, was based on data collected from 48 north Cyprus villages (n=218 sheep farmers). Sheep farmers in the region have stated that there are important problems in marketing, cooperation, getting credit, agricultural insurance, nutrition, breeding and animal health. To solve these problems, the government has applied base prices, banned imported milk and frozen meat, decreed credit rates and given priority to sheep farmers in assigning land.
