Lakavica region is characterized by low-land pastures that are especially suitable for grazing in winter. The pastures are situated mainly in the valleys of Konechka mountain and around Lacavica river. The “cow-calf” breeding system is typical for the region. This region borders the region of Ovche Pole – proposed for an Emerald site.

Hay-making is typical for the mountain areas in Macedonia where cereals are hard to grow and extensive livestock breeding systems ( for beef production) are the main activity of the rural population.
