The breed has a large brown structure of cattle bred in the north-east, and therefore we considered it appropriate to undertake studies and research on the current state of performance improvement and production of this breed in Suceava County. The motivation of this research is due to the fact that while in Moldova the brown race is increased by almost a century, have been taken to date little research depth (Bologa 2003; Ujica 1991, 1997, 2000) on this breed, especially in small and medium-sized farms. Number of cows that was the subject of research was 215 head, distributed in 20 private farms, small and medium (1-15 head herd size per farm) located mainly in the basin and Cimpulung Moldovenesc Wah. The analysis of milk production indices and their variability on successive lactates and the firm is found that the population has made productive performance in six of the seven lactates pursued) below 4100 kg milk, thus the genetic potential of the breed.
