EFABIS Greece is the official information system of Greece on animal genetic resources. The National Animal Genetic Resources Information System is part of the global DAD-IS, the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System. It is used to inform on and monitor all livestock breeds held in Greece. The website is available in two languages Greek and English. The Ministry of Rural Development and Food and the Hellenic Agricultural Organization are in charge of the regular updating of the data. 


Breed Diversity in Greece 

Mammalian and avian livestock breeds are reported to occur either in only a single country (local breeds), in several countries in one region (regional transboundary) or in different regions of the world (international transboundary).

Risk Status in Greece for cattle, sheep, goat, pig and chicken

Based on the population size reported by countries it is possible to assess the risk of extinction of domesticated animals.
