Examples are given of general management methods that will reduce the contamination of domestic food producing animals. Such methods will decrease the radiation exposure of the animal which could be of importance for its health and long-term production of food but more importantly in the short term they will decrease transfer of radioactive contamination to animal food products, i.e. milk, meat, offal and eggs. The most important radionuclides contaminating food products of animal origin, 90Sr, 131I and 137Cs, are specifically discussed in detail. By choosing proper general management methods it is possible to decrease the transfer of contaminating radionuclides to animal food products by an order of magnitude or more.
