COMPARATIVE MORFOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS IN BALŢATA ROMÂNEASCĂ CATTLE BREED, RAISED IN APUSENI AREA (HUNEDOARA AND ALBA COUNTY)

Ioan Han, Otilia Bobis

Abstract


The present study describes comparatively the morphological characteristics of Bălţata Românească breed from different farms from Hunedoara and Alba Countys raised in Apuseni area. This native breed is found to be the most suitable cattle breed, both for meat and for milk production. From the analysis of the morphological characteristics of the cows exploited in the studied farms we can conclude that the cattle herds have good, even very good, which provides a favorable biological platform for their productive life; Body indices calculated from biometric measurements indicate a harmonious development, the studied animals being well-proportioned, with a constitution that fits them into the mixed morpho-productive type.
