Livestock fund in municipality of Prijepolje consists of 7.165 heads of cattle; 16.366 sheep, 2.742 pigs and 1.552 goats. The rural area of the municipality represents a significant however still unused resource, not just for conventional food production but for development of sustainable organic animal husbandry production.

Touristic attractions could be mountain biking, biking, paragliding, canoeing, rafting, nature walking, free climbing, hunting and fishing and religious tourism. According to analysis, when we take into consideration the available resources, agricultural development in the future, especially development of animal husbandry and tourism should be the pillars of rural development of the Priepolje municipality.
