The paper intends to identify the main trends of the Romanian sheep and goat sector, after the accession to the EU, based on the analysis of the specific indicators regarding sheep and goat livestock and the production at national and EU level, using the data provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, National Institute for Statistics and European Commission. Sheep and goats are mainly present in Central, North-Eastern and South-Western Romania. About 362 thousand farmers are sheep breeders and 127 thousands are goat breeders. The average farm size is about 28.5 heads for sheep and 10.8 heads for goats. The sheep livestock increased by 29% in the analyzed period accounting for 12.288 thousands heads in 2015 and the goat livestock increased by 45%, accounting for 1.839 thousand heads in 2015. Mutton and goat meat production increased from 134 thousand tonnes in 2007 to 182 thousand tonnes in 2015.
