Abstract: 
The main indicators used in the analysis refer to: Utilized Agricultural Area (UAA), labour force in agriculture, animal herds, physical and economic farm size. In the period 2005-2013, the number of small-sized farms significantly decreased in Romania, while the number of medium and large-sized farms increased. The Utilized Agricultural Area distribution reveals that the bipolar structure of agriculture has been maintained. Although this distribution indicates a weak presence of medium-sized agrarian structures, there is a consolidation tendency of these structures. While the livestock production activity on the small-sized farms considerably decreased, the livestock herds doubled on the large-sized farms. However, this increase was not enough, so that overall one quarter of total herds was lost. The exit from the farming activity had a higher intensity on the mixed farms. Only a few types of activity entailed labour force increase.
