When we look at the development figures of Burdur Province, we can evaluate the prominent sectors that can support investment and have potential as Animal Husbandry-Dairy Industry and Mining Sectors.

Although the Western Mediterranean Region is not one of the leading regions in terms of animal existence, it has an important place in milk production in terms of culture and hybrid cattle existence and productive species.

According to TUIK data in the Western Mediterranean Region, as of December 2017, there are 507,458 cattle, 991,350 sheep and 1,215,840 head goats. Burdur has 41% of the total cattle in the region in cattle breeding. Antalya, on the other hand, is the leader of the region in terms of sheep and goats and the sheep and goats are the 55% of sheep and goats.

Burdur is the leader of the Western Mediterranean Region in dairy farming. The amount of milk obtained annually in the province is almost as much as the total milk production of Antalya and Isparta provinces. Although the same coefficient is not in question as the presence of milked animals, the yield in milk production is due to the cultural race of the existing animal species in Burdur. The fact that the amount of milk obtained is higher than the increase in the number of animals when we look at the change of animal production and milk production in the province shows that more developed species gain weight in terms of species.

In Burdur, the province where milk production is most common in the region, there are 1 to 5 cattle in almost half of the enterprises. Most of the businesses are located in the center of Burdur and its villages and Bucak district. Milk is milked in all of these establishments, which increases the quality of milk in terms of hygiene. In addition to this, 11 laboratory analyzes of milk produced in the province and also laboratory analyzes of milk produced in Burdur show that the level of harmful bacteria is significantly decreased and the quality of milk increases significantly.

 The strengths of the industry are the high level of animal presence in Burdur, the cultural race being predominant, strong organization, artificial fertilization and developments in breeding, the level of bacteria being close to zero, the milk being transported with a cold chain, and that growers are open to innovations. The opportunities in the development of the dairy industry are briefly; The Veterinary Faculty can be listed as working and cooperating with producers and unions, state supports for animal husbandry, improved understanding of cooperatives and unity, wide transportation opportunities, being close to a region where tourism is intense and this facilitates the marketing of the product.

The contribution of the agriculture and livestock sector to the gross national product in industrializing and developing countries comes after services and industrial production. A large part (approximately 70%) of milk produced in Burdur Province goes to processing facilities outside the province and is processed in these facilities. This causes not enough added value to be obtained from the milk produced. Considering the amount of milk produced, it is seen that the province needs more facilities.

Although Burdur Province is a leader in animal husbandry and milk production in the region, Antalya is the locomotive province of the region in the production and trade of milk and dairy products. The manufacturing sector is more advanced in Antalya due to reasons such as transportation advantages, being a tourism center and strong employment opportunities. Most of the producers working and exporting with high capacity are located in Antalya Organized Industrial Zone. Dairy producers operating in Burdur and Isparta produce more to meet the needs of the region.

3.3.NATURAL STONE

When we look at the natural stone sector in Burdur Province, the industry in Burdur showed an improvement in accordance with the local raw material sources. The main industries are meat and dairy processing, agro-based food industry, mining (marble and chrome industry), cement and soil products industry, weaving and some traditional handicrafts, carpeting, leatherwork and coppersmith are among the main sectors. According to TESK (2016) data; There are 10.660 workplaces in Burdur Province. The total number of tradesmen is 9,378 and the tradesmen population ratio is 3.63% of the total population.

41% of those working in industry in Burdur are employed in other mining and quarrying sectors and 20% in other non-metallic mineral products manufacturing sectors. 85% of industrial employment is worker and 2% is engineer. 44% of the industrial enterprises in our city are micro-scale, 47% are small-scale, 8% are medium-sized and 1% are large-scale enterprises.

Burdur Province benefited mostly from the marble sector with its marble quarries extraction and processing facilities and incentives. 51% of the incentive certificates issued in Burdur province consist of marble extraction and processing sector. The marble is followed by energy and municipal services.

The natural stone industry is one of the developing branches of mining in Burdur. The marble and travertine reserves in the city have been strengthened with the developing technology and knowledge and have reached serious export figures especially in the last 5 years. In our province, which has 40 million tons of Burdur Beige and 75 million cubic meters of travertine as a reserve, approximately 4 million m² / year Marble is produced. In the period of 1990-2008, while industrial production was made as a construction product mainly as marble, travertine and mosaic manufacturing, the way of production and sales changed for about 8 years; factory management has been replaced by quarry management and block sales management. While the marble and natural stone sector still operates with 145 marble quarries and 121 marble factories and workshops, it has become the largest and most important sector in Burdur that makes up one third of total employment. There are 745 operating licensed natural stone fields in the Western Mediterranean Region (Antalya-Burdur-Isparta). The total operating license in Burdur is 461, of which 235 are those with operating permits.

There are a total of 295 companies in the provinces of Antalya, Burdur and Isparta, members of the Western Mediterranean Exporters Association (BAIB-2016). 100 of these companies operate in Burdur Center and its districts. The high standards of the highway infrastructure of the Western Mediterranean Region, the presence of two airports and the Antalya port in the region strengthens export opportunities. Antalya, Burdur and Isparta total of 295 firms are making in Turkey's marble exports are also engaged in marble export more than 10 provinces of the western Mediterranean provinces.
