Have you heard about on-going research project “Evaluation of Montenegrin summer pastures through the sustainable development of agriculture and tourism – KATUN” 1

The name might be long and confusing, viagra but what this project really is about is how to keep sustainable traditional way of cattle breed and milk-made products in the summer pastures – KATUN.The field visits will last for several mounts, remedy and during that time summer-shepherd-settlements (katun) will be mapped on various mountains. This research will also consider development of agriculture and agro-tourism.

sirkajmakWhen warm weather comes and snow melts down, shepherds go with their cattle high into the mountains. During the summer, it may be too warm in valleys and grass dries. Sometimes, there might even be a lack of water. But in the mountains, climate is milder, so it is much easier to feed the cattle. It is not necessary to overemphasize the values of the environment in uninhabited mountainous areas. Superiority of air, water, herbs, etc. And those are places where shepherds and cattle spend few months a year. Can you imagine quality of milk-made products from katun?

Our colleagues from NGO EXPEDITIO are involved in this project, funded by the Ministry of Science under the grant project of the World Bank, to implement the Biotechnical Faculty, Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality in Kotor and the Historical Institute of Montenegro with the two prtners (HM "Durmitor" Zabljak and the "Old House" from Podgorica) and supported by four partner institutions from the EU (Slovenia, Sweden and two from Italy).
