The purpose of this research was to determine the degree of farm animal feed contamination with pathogenic microflora, microscopic fungi, and mycotoxins. Investigation of 16 types of farm animal feeds (barley, wheat, corn, pea, oat, grain mixture, scalpings, oilcakes, fish meal, meat-and-bone meal, combined feeds for pigs of different ages, combined feeds for poultry and cattle, feed additives, and premixes) from 175 farms of different regions of the Russian Federation in the period from 2006 to 2012 revealed the nature of their contamination with pathogenic microflora, microscopic fungi, and mycotoxins. This article provides methods of animal disease prevention when using feeds containing biological contaminants dangerous for animals’ health.
