The main activities in the Lozere department are cattle farming and tourism (the Aubrac cow os celebrated within France for the quality of the beef it produces). The Lozère department has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in France, but this is often the result of many inhabitants leaving the area in search of work in Lyon, Marseille and Montpellier.
