Abstract


Airborne microorganisms in animal shelters are an indicator of air quality, shelters hygiene and animal health. Measurements performed in a cattle farm highlighted ​​exceeding of the recommended values for the total number of germs in all the 4 shelters. In the three of them, overruns were recorded also in the other groups: staphylococci, streptococci, gram negative bacteria and fungi. This was due to an inefficient ventilation and manure stagnation in shelters.
