Nematodes were collected from the gastrointestinal tract of 611 small ruminants and 105 of cattle during the 2018-2020 in the farms of in Uzbekistan. These nematodes represented 28 species, including sheep - 25, goats - 21 and, cattle – 22 of these 27 species belonged to in are geohelminthes, and only 1 species was biohelminthes the main core of nematodes of the gastrointestinal tracts of domestic ruminants is 14 species, 11 - facultative and 3 - potential. The total infection was 76.7% in sheep, 61.7% in goats and 55.3% in cattle. Twenty species were common to all ruminants. Trichostrongylus vitrinus and Marshallagia petrovi were recorded only for one species of ruminants. The species of genus Trichostrongylus and Nematodirus predominated the gastrointestinal fauna of ruminants in terms of species composition, P. skrjabini, M. marshalli and O. ostertagi were dominant in terms of the intensity of infection.
