According to the Federal Law of August 3, 2018 No. 280-FZ organic agriculture is referred to as total economic activity that enables the development of ways, methods and technologies that promote favorable state of the environment and improve human health. The need for this law is dictated by the data of the Research Institute of Nutrition of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which claim that 30-50% of all diseases of Russians arise from the consumption of poor-quality food. 30% of the pollution of the world ecosystem refer to an agricultural sector, which is an obvious need for the greening of agriculture and the production of organic products. Organic products mean environmentally friendly agricultural products, raw materials and food in the production of which the following requirements are met: the use of agrochemicals is prohibited, pesticides and antibiotics, growth stimulants are absent, and hormones are not used in animal fattening. Taking into account Russian legislation, the products of dairy cattle breeding should not indicate the presence of oxytetrocycline, levomycetine, streptomycin, tetracycline, ampicillin, penicillin, grisin, bacitrocin. Natural resistance in cows is reduced as a result of negative factors (stress factors) characterizing the industrial technology for the production of livestock products itself, and negative environmental factors. Currently, the development of dairy cattle breeding and the increase in animal productivity are restrained by the high incidence of diseases of the reproductive organs, among which a significant part are inflammatory diseases of the genitals, in particular endometritis (up to 90% of the total number of calving cows). The use of herbal preparations in folk and traditional veterinary science and medicine makes it relevant to search for new plants for obtaining medicinal raw materials in the treatment and prevention of endometritis. Common thyme is proposed as such. The article shows the results of using common thyme for cows with endometritis as antibiotic replacement therapy, which confirmed by an increase in a number of biochemical blood indicators and the overall health of animals.
Key words: organic products / antibiotic replacement therapy / common thyme / postnatal endometritis.
