Nóra Gombkötő, Judit Hegyi and László Pongrácz

Abstract

Proper and economical horse keeping is influenced by many factors. Calculating the costs of horse keeping, one should take into account the specific needs of the horse (mainly concerning the keeping technology and feeding). However, probable costs and income are also influenced by the form of utilization and by the working mode of the animals. Cost-effectiveness is determined by the relation between costs and income. In this study costs and potential income related to horse keeping were examined at several horse farms in the Szigetköz region. The study definitely shows that labour cost is the major cost of horse keeping, which is followed by feeding cost, then cost of veterinarian and the other costs category.
