Abstract. The present short communication presents a comparison between the milk fat composition of four old sheep breeds. All animals were fed the same diet and a milk sample was obtained at the same lactation day and analyzed for its major components, cholesterol concentration and a complete fatty acid profile. From all studied candidates, the Walachian breed (also when compared with modern breeds employed in the dairy industry) was determined to have the most suitable milk composition for human health.
