The latest figures by Hungary's Central Statistical Office (KSH) show that poultry livestock figures have gone through drastic fluctuations in the past five years, and have dropped significantly by 2021. Experts in the sector blame recurring Avian influenza outbreaks as the main reason for this population decline. In 2021, two major outbreak series occurred, in the spring and in the fall. In 2015, there were around one million geese in the poultry sector, which increased to 1.2 to 1.3 million heads in the following years. In 2020, the geese population shrunk by 29%, to 798 thousand heads. The population of ducks has shown even more volatility, its peak was in 2018 with 4.9 million heads. In 2020, the duck population declined by 32% to 2.98 million heads. Avian influenza is a cardinal issue for Hungary's waterfowl sector. According to the news portal Agrárszektor, throughout the Avian influenza outbreaks of 2020, almost 3.2 million heads of poultry livestock had to be culled.
