Abstract
Organochlorine (OC) residues have been monitored in N. Ireland in animal products and the environment since 1972. Examination of OC residues in butter revealed seasonal fluctuations in HCH concn., with peaks in Jan.-Feb. and April-May. No consistent change was noted in other OC residues. HCH residues were mainly alpha -HCH. The high level of contamination was attributed to technical HCH in externally applied veterinary preparations (louse powder).
