This study is focused on the monitoring of aflatoxin M1 in fresh milk in the region of Pollog in North
Macedonia. The study was carried out from three collection points with a total of 139 farmers (Point 1 = 60
farmers, point 2 = 60 and point 3 = 19 farmers). The study was carried out during the month of February 2023.
Two samples were taken per week for four weeks in a row. The samples were analyzed with the fluorometric
method (Fluorometer VICAM Series-4EX). The results were characterized according to the EU regulation
(µg/kg). It should be noted that in all crops there was the presence of aflatoxin B1, even though this year was
very wet and the farmers' food was less affected by the moisture, resulting in less mold. In this study, a survey
was also carried out about the way animals are fed.

Keywords: fresh milk, aflatoxin M1, Fluorometer, Pollog region, winter season.
