Abstract: Agriculture is a major user of natural resources. Including livestock in the farming system increases the complexity of biological and economic relationships. This study identifies sustainability performance indicators in dairy farms of Baltic States, linking economic, social and environmental variables. Sustainable agriculture integrates three pillars: the economic, environmental and social pillars. As a result of literature review and FADN data analysis, a set of key variables of sustainability in dairy farms of the Baltic States is presented. The study concludes that dairy farms of any Baltic State on average do not perform on remarkably high levels in comparison with other states concerning all three sustainability.
