ABSTRACT
Located on the territory of two neighbouring “land”-type regions and approached from a diachronic perspective, the grazing activity represents the subject of debate in this article. The first part of the paper focuses on the amplitude of grazing during the 15th - 20th centuries in the local economy, of the practiced grazing types and number of sheep, the occurrence causal factors and the impact of grazing upon the economic life are rendered. The second part of the article pursues the present functional significances of grazing, by the analysis of sheep and goats and wool production dynamics or by the outline of viable alternatives of grazing perpetuation.
