According to the existing information, there are about 900,000 small or big herds, which can be considered as production enterprises. There is no detailed knowledge about herd structure and economic function of these units. Therefore statistical data or documents that refer to herd composition are too vague. Viewpoints which are presented on economic function of these units vary too. In this article that is based on the findings of a participatory research among herders of eastern Elburz, we tried to explain detailed composition of stable herds and culled part of flock to sale in each year. According to the results, separation of production from capital and other economic issues of herds such as accounting should be carried out via accurate and obvious manner.
