Sažetak

In the survey, some variables were analyzed of cross-compliance control on livestock production farms in Croatia from 2011 to 2018. Collected data covered three animal production groups: cattle, sheep and goats, and pigs, for which the following parameters were monitored: wrongly marked breed, wrong gender, incorrect labeling, no animal on the holding, and no evidence of the animal in the farm register or in the national one. A total of 621,146 animals were surveyed, and in 92,523 (14.89%) of them noncompliance was found. It ranged from 9.66% in 2012 to 26.30% in 2018. Out of 221,311 investigated cattle, 373,515 sheep and goats and 26,320 pigs, noncompliance was found in 18.74%, 13.28% and 5.58% respectively. More noncompliance was detected in 2011 when the on-the-spot control started, followed by a decrease in the amount of noncompliance observed in 2012. However, in 2013, 2014 and 2018 an increase in the proportion of noncompliance was detected (17.54%, 16.86% and 26.30% respectively), due to the introduction of new parameters, i.e. new risk factors used in monitoring, and a lack of adequate education of farmers to adapt to new conditions. The value of the correlation coefficient (r) between the proportion of a particular production group of animals in the total number of animals, and the proportion of non-compliant animals in that production group for cattle was -0.232, for sheep and goats 0.637, and for pigs -0.317. For cattle and pigs this implies a negative but very weak correlation, and for sheep and goats a positive but moderate correlation. This means that there is not sufficient evidence of a strong negative correlation between those two variables, which was the hypothesis. The most important noncompliance item in cattle was no identification in the central register (26.25%), and the wrong gender (25.00%) in sheep and goats. The findings imply that more frequent training, as well as improvement of cooperation between all stakeholders should be obligatory measures for better farm management, resulting in reduced frequency of noncompliance.
