For this purpose preparations were done by following the “Javelle-Kleyd” and “Geksadekon” instructions. It was concluded that crop and biological methods have bactericidal activity in relation to Mycobacteria tuberculosis, bovine kind with disinfectants “Javelle-Kleyd” in concentration 0,1 % and exposure of 30 minutes and 1hour and “Geksadekon” in concentration 3 % and exposure time of 5 hours. “Javelle-kleyd” and “Geksadekon” disinfectants in certain modes, are possible to apply for prophylactic and forced disinfection in happy and unhappy economies in relation to tuberculosis of animals.
