Abstract: Poverty is now in the heart of the discourse of development. Livestock is important in supporting the livelihoods of poor farmers, consumers, traders and labourers throughout the developing world. The greatest impact of livestock in sustainable development designed to help the poor is enhancement of livestock-production systems. We will discuss the negative and positive effects of poor livestock in east part of Turkey. Using data from Turkish Statistical Institution to analyse the impact “decreasing livestock” on poverty. We are discussing the efforts to reduce animal poverty and to prioritize the livestock diseases related to the poor. An empirical evidence from Latin America will show growth in livestock production has played important role. In these regions, improvements in animal health, new productivity gains and increased purchasing power should result in further increases in production. We will show the benefits of a more rigorous evaluation before new initiatives to measure the importance of the livestock to the poor are audited. We conclude with a consideration of how we can better grasp and use animal husbandry and animal health. Then how can we understand relationship between livestock and poverty and help control diseases. And how much is the impact of the livestock disease on poverty stemming from the disease control policy itself?
