On October 6, 2021, the Government of Georgia approved the state program on "access to state-owned pastures". The program allows livestock owners to secure and use preferred pastures through an auction within the framework of a three-year lease agreement. The program aims to promote rational pasture use, protect pastures from degradation, and simultaneously facilitate the development of the livestock sector by establishing legitimate private responsibility for pastures.
