Özet

In this study sheep production structures of 11 West Anatolian cities (Afyonkarahisar, Aydin, Balikesir, Bursa Canakkale, Denizli, Izmir, Kutahya, Manisa, Mugla and Usak) have been compared and classified. Data were obtained from Turkish Statistical Institute including numbers of sheep and milking sheep, sheep milk production, number of slaughtered sheep, sheep meat production, number of sheep shorn, wool production during 2003-2008 years. Multidimensional Scaling and Cluster Analyses were used for classifying the cities for sheep production. Results from MDS and cluster analyzes show that four city groups for sheep production were available such as Afyonkarahisar - Balikesir; Izmir - Manisa; Bursa - Canakkale - Denizli - Kutahya - Usak, and Aydin - Mugla.
