According to the EU statistics office, Romania occupies the 3rd position in the European Union, after UK and Spain, regarding the largest sheep flock, with more than 9,8 million heads of ewes. With 69.9 % of all sheep, the Tsurcana – also called “The Queen of the Mountains” – is the first most important sheep breed in Romania, followed by the Tsigai breed – the second most important sheep breed from this country, with 24.3% of all sheep.
Sheep keeping was, is and will continue to be an important part of Romanian agriculture. About 20% of the country’s land areas and about 30% of Romanian agricultural areas are covered by permanent pasture, so the Tsurcana and the Tsigai breeds are kept in large areas of pastures in mountain and sub-mountain regions.
Also, both breeds are rustic and have multi-purpose breed with focus on meat, milk, cheese production and wool. Lamb production has become of more interest in the last years due to export opportunities in the EU and not only.
