Abstract

Purpose: In this research we have determined impact of activities of the settled herders on soil, water and plantation of degraded pasture land caused by distortion of technology of cattle breeding, content of some chemicals in blood serum of livestock as well as plantation number and cover.

Conclusions: 1. Grazing crop of the settled camp of gers is less by 3-6 species and cover size is less by 8-10 percent compared to the control area. 2. It has been determined that content of Cu, Co, Se, Pb in soil and plant of pasture land of the settled camp of gers in close pasture land Zn, Fe is the least in close and middle pasture lands and the most in remote pasture land. 3. Copper contained in water is higher by 0.132 ppm than the internationally accepted highest level, zinc is less by 0.233 ppm and iron, cobalt, selenium and lead is 2-7 times more than the permissible highest level. 4. Copper, zinc, cobalt and iron contained in the blood serum of the livestock of the settled camp of gers is less than normal psychological amount and selenium and lead are higher than the permissible amount. 5. Much heavy metal contained in soil, water and plant of the close pasture land of the settled camp of gers is determined by much content of selenium and lead in the serum that may affect food security and social health.
