It  was made the research of the adaptive ability and natural resistance of Polissia meat breed animals, the area of their content was limited by the conditions of the lowland, forested and bogged territory of the Ukrainian Polissia and Precarpathian. Materials for analysis were selected with scientific publications and works, which reflect the issue of the breeding and maintenance of Polissia meat breed animals, as well as their own research on the natural resistance of cows. As a result of the analysis of the obtained  information, it was found out that the cows of the 1st experimental group of the high-growth type, they  possess a high potential of natural resistance, a somewhat lower resistance was detected in the cows of the intermediate type (II control group) and compact type (III experimental group). From these studies it emerges that there is the advisability of a comprehensive study of the type of constitution, since this determines the level of natural resistance and light resistance of animals. Only strong animals are able to be healthy, to give a viable and full-fledged offspring, to have high productivity, to withstand constant operational loads on the body and for a long time to be rationally operated with the greatest economic efficiency.
