Abstract


The ‘Pinzgau of Transylvania’ taurine breed was formed in Transylvania and Banat through the German population’s efforts in what concerns the work of amelioration and selection. The research has been carried out during 1998 – 2008. In the year 1936 there were approximately 18700 specimens of the ‘Pinzgau of Transylvania’ breed, while in 2008 there are only 875 specimens left (pure blood and half blood) and the number is still heavily decreasing. In Banat, the breeding system regarding this breed is the traditional one. The average milk production of the ‘Pinzgau of Transylvania’ breed here in Banat is 3278 kg, the fat percent is 3,23±0,01 and the protein percent 3,88±0,01. The ability for meat production is 740 – 810 g/day. In what concerns the global warming, this breed adapts very well to mountain areas as well as to plain areas. In order to preserve the traditional products of Banat, it is advisable to maintain this breed.
