The utilization of the Hortobágy reservation

The peculiar landscape values and biological diversity of the Hortobágy were formed and preserved by the traditional land use forms (extensive animal farming). The rich culture historical and ethnographical heritage of the region is also connected to the herding activity. Since the extensive animal farming has become economically not profitable anymore, the lack of grazing livestock on the "puszta" is a major problem of preserving our first national park, which is nominated as World Heritage. At the same time, the more profitable animal farming methods adversely affect the landscape and biological values. It is a basic question determining the future of the "puszta": how can new, advanced methods be integrated to the traditional animal farming practice, how can the extensively (on the pastures) kept grazing livestock be increased and grazing be applied as nature conservation management tool.
