Abstract:  The present paper focus­es on the agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices of the dairy farms from Dor­nelor Basin, Sucea­va coun­ty, regard­ing grass­land man­age­ment, live­stock feed, live­stock dis­ease man­age­ment, aim­ing to eval­u­ate the rela­tion­ship between tra­di­tion­al and eco­log­i­cal prac­tices, based on the expect­ed increase in the near future of the eco­log­i­cal farm­ing in the area. The sci­en­tif­ic approach turns to a com­par­a­tive analy­sis, based on a struc­tured com­mu­ni­ca­tion method – Del­phi, involv­ing 10 experts/local actors and to a large-scale farm sur­vey applied to 52 dairy farms from the Dor­nelor Basin area. The results high­light a cor­re­la­tion between experts’ opin­ion regard­ing the most impor­tant prac­tices for defin­ing an eco­log­i­cal farm and the tra­di­tion­al agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices of the dairy farms from the study area, as these can be con­sid­ered, to a high extend, to be eco­log­i­cal prac­tices. 
Key­words: farm’s char­ac­ter­is­tics, tra­di­tion­al agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices, eco­log­i­cal prac­tices.
