Abstract

Aim. To analyze the level of the intake of active substances from chemical sanitizing agents into the environment after sanitizing milking equipment at farms of different ownership forms. Methods. The calculation method was used. Results. It was determined that after sanitizing of milking equipment and milk containers with such agents as GALA for dishes, FAIRY juicy lemon, as well as alkaline agents (Chlorantoin, Loiran, Eco chlor, San alkalin, Sulfochlorantin, Catril D, Basix, Hyproclor ED, CircoSuper AF) and acid agents (San acid, Acid XD, Eco cid, Hypracid, CircoSuper SFM) at a milking farm with 1,000 cows and at 800 private farms, within a year the environment would have the intake of chlorine compounds in the amount of 1,529.8 t, anion surface active substances (SAS) – 767.0 t, phosphates – 584.4 t, silicates – 365.0 t, cation SAS – 182.6 t, non-ionogenic SAS – 0.33 t and about 7,026.3 t acids. This may condition the impairment of natural biogeocenoses. Conclusions. The application of such agents as Loiran, Catril D and TDS to sanitize milking equipment and milk containers at milking farms and at private farms decreases the probability of impairing natural biogeocenoses.
