    The revealed data showed that feed contamination by microscopic fungi exceeded permissible limits. There was found such species of micromycetes as Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Alternaria, Mucor and others in studied feed. The fungi were isolated from different types of fodder. For the micromycetes contamination research it was selected 60 samples from different groups of feed. There were isolated and identified 139 strains of fungi. It was isolated 35 fungi strains from wheat, 33 from corn, 19 from forage mixture, 18 from barley, 15 from feed stuff, 9 from sunflower cake, 6 from rye and 4 from soybean cake.

Keywords: strain, feed producers, fungi, mycobiota.
