Changes in European policy regarding the environment and food safety, requires changes in agricultural practices for the sustainable production and quality of product. For the study it was consulted the national and international literature in the last 10 years and we focused on a number of eight feeds in an effort to consider the values of heavy metals found at their level. Analysis of data showed high variability, for Pb limits ranging from 0.060 mg / kg for wheat berries and 42.20÷61.40 mg/kg green forage (natural grassland), and Cd 0.025 mg / kg for wheat berries and 11,2÷14.4 mg/kg of green forage (natural grassland). Peaks found for both Pb and Cd are above the law in force in accordance with MPL ANSVSA Order no. 18/2007 and no. 19/2009, the final conclusion is that an alternative to reduce the pollutant content in feeds, such heavy metals, may be the use of organic agricultural system.
