Describes the use of mare’s milk and kumys as food and as a therapeutic and prophylactic agent in the traditional regions of horse breeding and developed countries. Enumerated major storage problems of horse milk and kumys and approaches to their solution. Adduced data of the microflora of kumys from Mongolia. Бие сүті мен қымыздың тағам және емдік­профилактикалық зат ретінде дәстүрлі табынды жылқы шаруашылығы аймақтарында және дамыған елдерде қолданылуы сипатталған. Бие сүті мен қымызды сақтаудың негізгі қиындықтары мен оларды шешу жолдары көрсетілген. Моңғолия қымызының микрофлорасының нақтылы мәліметтері келтірілген.
