Abstract: In my research I have analysed the agricultural co-operative animal breeding and animal produce characteristics of four Mid Szigetköz villages (Ásványráró, Hédervár, Darnózseli and Püski) from 1990 to 2006. I began my search with agricultural research, by examining the documents and notes pertaining to the agricultural history of the villages. According to the results of my search the Mid Szigetköz, – just like the entire Szigetköz region – had an exceptionally rich, valuable animal breeding culture, which was also rich in tradition. In the next analytical parts of my search I have analysed the indicators and natural data which characterised and determined the productivity structure of co-operatives, their animal breeding and their way of manufacturing animal produce (1990–2006). I concluded that the changes which affected the whole country the animal stock of the researched co-operatives had decreased drastically, and the range of animal produce has narrowed strongly, the result being that animal farming and breeding has become much less significant. My search has further determined that cycles and a medium-term fluctuation can be seen in the animal stock and the animal produce, which show a differing movement from the general tendencies and the changes which occurred nationwide. The results prove that besides the general economic effects, other special problems and effects specific to this unique region have prevailed as well. Therefore the analysis of the facts which effect and influence the animal breeding in the villages of the Mid Szigetköz region is particularly important.
