The EU Common Agricultural Policy enables to provide coupled payments for cattle breeding. The article compares the profitability in dairy cows and suckler cows breeding under the Czech agricultural policy and market conditions. It is approved that particularly very large farms with an extensive suckler cows breeding on permanent grassland are oversupported and realize rents. Based on the analytical results, suggestions to distribute the supports more effectively and fairly, particularly those under the Council Regulation (EC) No. 73/2009, Article 68, are presented.Keywords:
