The purpose of this paper is to investigate the evolution and situation of Carpathian goat breed population from Argeș County. Carpathian breed is the oldest, most widespread, primitive, rustic, resistant and very heterogeneous breed in terms of morphological characteristics. The biologic material is represented by 25 females and 6 males belonging to Carpathian breed. The livestock presents the following morphological characteristics: live weight (39.03±0.52 kg females and 51.42±0.91 kg males), whiter height (61.11±0.76 cm females and 68.23±0.45 cm males), trunk length (65.57±0.66 cm females and 77.94±0.65 cm males), thoracic width (15.05±0.35 cm females and 18.64±0.4 cm males), thoracic perimeter (66.30±0.57 cm females and 76.82±0.42 cm males), shin-bone perimeter (6.83±0.09 cm females and 8.08±0.15 cm males), resulting a dolicomorphe body type. The average production of milked milk per month is 31.68 kg during May-October and the chemical composition of the goat milk reveals a dry matter content of 13.58%, (fat 4.41%, protein 3.57%), which represents a qualitative goat milk, especially when is taken into account that is a local and rustic breed.
