Abstract: In this study, it has been examined the relationship between developments of Turkish livestock production for the last ten years and supports given to livestock production. The relationship of the change experienced latterly with respect to animal production value, red meat and milk production and animal quantities with the supports given to livestock production has been explained with Simple Regression Model. Although, there is decrease of 19% in the number of bovine and ovine animals during the last ten years in Turkey, there is only decrease of 6.6% in total meat production and there is an increase of 21% in milk production. Changing which is started from 2000 in Turkish agriculture policies has taken back livestock production sector. But there are important increases in animal production values with the increased supports in livestock production scope after 2004. Thus, the animal production value which was $7.9 billion in 1997 reached up to $19.5 billion in 2008 with an increase of 147%. According to the results of the regression analysis made, 1 unit increase to be made in livestock production supports results in an increase of 14 units in animal production value and 3206 units in milk production.
