Department of Veterinary Hygiene named after Professor A.K. Skorokhodko

Department history

The department was founded by professor A.K. Skorokhodko in December 1922 as part of the Kyiv Veterinary and Zootechnical Institute (KVZI). The newly created department was headed by A.K. Skorokhodko until 1939. During 1939 - 1941 the Department of Zoohygiene was headed by associate professor M.K. Shevchenko. From 1941 to 1944, as a part of KZVI, the department was in evacuation in Sverdlovsk. During this period, the Department of Hygiene was headed by associate professor K.O. Levitsky, who took an active part in its development. He was the author of the first laboratory manual on animal hygiene, published in Ukrainian. In 1944, the Department of Zoohygiene was headed by professor B.Kh. Medvedev and associate professor M.P. Zhovanyk.
Professor A.K. Skorokhodko was the head of the department from July 1944 till February 1954.

He started working on the problem of studying the processes of thermoregulation and thermoadaptation in farm animals. He has published more than 75 scientific papers, including 9 textbooks and manuals on animal hygiene, which have been translated into 15 foreign languages. He prepared the first textbook "Hygiene of farm animals" (1922). Associate professors K.S. Yermolaeva and O.L. Bedrata continued to develop professor’s A.K. Skorokhodko scientific direction, supported and preserved the traditions of the department. As a head of the Department of Zoohygiene, professor M.S. Borsch started working on a new area of research, namely the study of thermoregulation processes in pigs with the intensive introduction of industrial methods of industrial technologies for the production of livestock products. Professor O.G. Tymchenko has made a significant contribution to the study of acclimatization of beef cattle in different climatic zones of Ukraine. Associate professor V.P. Mazurenko dealt with applied issues of animal physiology and hygiene, studied the role of carbon dioxide and ammonium nitrogen in the regulation of metabolism and physiological functions in heterotrophic organisms. He co-authored 6 textbooks.
From 1996 to August 31, 2012 the department was headed by Doctor of Biological Sciences, Corresponding Member of NAAS of Ukraine, professor M.O. Zakharenko. In 1998, by decision of the staff, the Department of Animal Hygiene was named after A.K. Skorokhodko, and in 2005 it was divided into two departments. The Department of Animal Hygiene named after A.K. Skorokhodko as a part of the educational and scientific institute of Animal Husbandry and Aquatic Bioresources was headed by professor M.O. Zakharenko, and the Department of Veterinary Sanitation and Hygiene of Livestock Products as a part of the educational and scientific institute of Veterinary Medicine, Quality and Safety of Livestock Products, by the Order of the Rector №420 from 30.06.2005, was headed by Doctor of Veterinary Sciences, professor D.A. Zasekin. In June 2009, as a result of merging with the Department of Technology of Processing of Livestock and Fish Products, this department was transferred to the Institute of Quality and Standardization of Food and Food Technologies and renamed into the Department of Technology of Processing and Circulation of Livestock Products and Sanitation of Processing Enterprises. Later on, according to the Order of the Rector of NULES of Ukraine №523 from 28.05.2010, it was renamed into the Department of Sanitation and Hygiene of Processing Enterprises of Agro-Industrial Complex (AIC).
On August 31, 2012 according to the Order of the Rector of NULES of Ukraine № 730, the Department of Animal Hygiene named after A.K. Skorokhodko was merged with the Department of Sanitation and Hygiene of Processing Enterprises of AIC, renamed into the Department of Hygiene and Sanitation named after A.K. Skorokhodko and transferred to the educational and scientific institute of Veterinary Medicine and Quality and Safety of Livestock Products.
Since 1996, professor Zakharenko M.O. began working on a new direction in animal hygiene: the study of the content of lower aliphatic amines in the air of livestock facilities and feed and their impact on the clinical condition, metabolic status and resistance of animals. In 2001, he established a scientific strain laboratory to improve and implement in the production of microorganisms-overproducers of carotenoids. At the same time, he founded a new direction of research on the synthesis of chelated compounds of trace elements for farm animals feeding.
Employees of the department provide the educational process in the state language for students of the faculties of veterinary medicine, technology of production and processing of livestock products, food technology and quality management of agricultural products, agrobiosystems, fisheries, pedagogical and advanced training and retraining of staff for agro-industrial and environmental protection. Employees of the department published 18 textbooks, 16 manuals, 6 monographs, almost 1,500 scientific papers and 170 patents for inventions. In the last 5 years, such textbooks as "Hygiene and feeding of dogs"; "Sanitary and hygienic requirements for water supply of agricultural enterprises"; "Transportation of animals and products"; "Sanitary and hygienic aspects of beekeeping", etc., manual "Design and construction of enterprises for the production and processing of livestock products", manuals for laboratory classes on animal hygiene, sanitation and hygiene in fish farming, biology of animal productivity, workbooks for laboratory work on animal hygiene, training and sanitary practice have been published.
The department cooperates with such scientific institutions as the Institute of Veterinary Medicine of NAAS of Ukraine, the Institute of Surface Chemistry, the Institute of Ecohygiene and Toxicology named after L.I. Medved, as well as Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and the leading enterprises of Ukraine and foreign countries in the direction of technology of creation of modern biologically active additives for feeding of farm animals.
The scientific achievements of the department consist in creating of sources of trace elements of a new generation for animals in the form of complex compounds with amino acids, developing methods for obtaining new strains of microorganisms-producers of carotenoids.
During the period of the department's existence, three Doctors of Sciences and 20 PhD have been trained.

The department was headed by:

Yermolaieva Klavdiia  (October 29, 1906 - 1986). She was born in the Saratov region of the Russian Federation in a family of peasants. In 1932 she graduated from the veterinary faculty of the Saratov Zooveterinary Institute.
Klavdiia took the position of assistant of the Department of Zoohygiene of the Kyiv Veterinary Institute in 1949, having considerable experience in research work. After graduation from the All-Union Institute of Experimental Veterinary Medicine (Moscow) under the supervision of A.V. Prokhorov and the defense of her dissertation, she worked for about 13 years as a senior researcher in the department of filtering viruses headed by the world-renowned scientist, our compatriot Mykhailo Hamaliia.
Since 1954, K.S. Yermolaieva was elected as a head of the department.
Klavdiia supported the best traditions laid down by her predecessors, first of all by the indisputable humanist and tireless worker with a generous soul, professor A.K. Skorokhodko. She was distinguished by scientific erudition, emotional restraint, inconspicuous intelligence. Together with Olga Bedrata and Halyna Odoshkina, she cultivated an atmosphere of calm, balanced working relations, and creativity at the department.
Associate professor K.S. Yermolaieva together with staff and graduate students continued to develop the scientific direction defined by professor A.K. Skorokhodko. In October 1960, the scientific work was significantly revived after the establishment of the laboratory of zoohygiene at the station of meat cattle breeding "Vorzel" (scientific supervisor - professor K.B. Sviechyn). For a long time, the Vorzel research station was destined to become a center where complex scientific issues of dairy and meat cattle breeding development in Ukraine were solved.
On the basis of the research station "Vorzel" under the guidance of associate professor K.S. Yermolaieva, along with employees of the department, graduate students L.V. Sovenko, I.B. Ihnatev, P. Dziubenko conducted their research.
The performed works deepened the issues of thermoregulation and gas exchange in cattle in age and breed aspects and in conditions of prolonged starvation; evaluated the role and importance of ventilation systems in cattle premises and in poultry houses.
 

Borshch Mykhailo (November 19, 1918 - November 13, 1995) was born in the town of Varva, Chernihiv region.

He worked as an assistant professor. Since 1964 he has been the head of the department. In 1974 he defended his dissertation and obtained a degree of Doctor of Veterinary Sciences. He became a professor in 1976.
Under his supervision, two PhD dissertations were defended by Vasyl Mazurenko and Oraz Ilhekbaiev (Kazakhstan). During the war he served in the military in the reserve units of Siberia.
Borsch MS continued his scientific research according to the traditions of his teacher. In 1956 he defended his dissertation on the topic: "Study of the role of temperature and humidity in the cultivation of piglets".
As the head of the department, in scientific work M.S. Borshch oriented pedagogical staff on the development of current problems of animal husbandry in connection with the introduction of industrial methods of industrial technology of livestock production in industrial complexes, thermogenesis and thermoregulation in suckling piglets depending on age, seasonal characteristics and stimulation of hematopoiesis in them, as well as the productive qualities of sows, the conditions of formation of the microclimate in the premises and measures to optimize them.
A notable milestone in the activities of the department is the five-year work on the development of veterinary and hygienic measures to improve the efficiency of fattening pigs in industrial complexes. On the basis of the department, through the efforts of professor M.S. Borshch was created a team of highly qualified specialists in various fields of science (V.P. Mazurenko, V.V. Krasii, L.V. Sovenko, V.B. Borysevych, N.T. Danylevska, E.M. Zabelo, V. Melikhov, M.P. Teres and others), who represented several faculties of our university and enterprises of the military-industrial complex.
Within the defined theme a complex of scientific research (veterinary-hygienic, clinical-physiological, cytomorphological, ethological) and several series of production experiments were carried out. In addition, an original electronic device SK-1 was developed to suppress sexual arousal in fattening pigs, and two applications for inventions were sent to Moscow.
Through the efforts of the staff of the department (M.S. Borshch, V.P. Mazurenko, V.V. Krasii, L.V. Sovenko, V.M. Shevchuk, R.M. Pukhovych) the issues of peculiarities of microclimate formation and methods of its optimization in farrowing crates, rearing of piglets, fattening of pigs on pig complexes were also studied (“Kalityansky”, Kyiv region, state farm “Russia”, Cherkasy region). The influence of various factors on the duration of productive use of sows and the quality of the obtained offspring was studied at the mentioned enterprises.
With the participation of professor M.S. Borsch, "veterinary and sanitary rules for specialized pig farms" (approved by the State Veterinary Service with the State Veterinary Inspection of the State Agrarian Industry of the USSR on November 4, 1986) and others, were developed.
 

Mazurenko Vasyl (19.10.1938 - 17.12.1995), headed the department from 1991 to 1995.
He was born in the village of Vepryn, Radomyshl district, Zhytomyr region. After graduating from the Veterinary Faculty of the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy in 1960, he worked as a general practitioner at horse farms in Luhansk region.
