Abstract : In certain areas there is still a significant livestock death rate due to brucellosis. Taking into consideration the unusually contagous character of an infected specimen's miscarriage , it is necessary to establish protective measures in such a way that they would counteract infection characteristics and thus become a truly beneficial means in the battle against brucellosis. The measures employed thus far, whether in the Ministry of Agriculture 5 so-called Blue Direct ives of 8 August l95l on how to protect the animal from infection, or in the special l952 Directives on how to prevent and eradicate infectious miscarriages in cattle, contributed significantly to the stabilization of contaiousness and stopped its rapid spread which reached such considerable heights. Even if the introduced measures have proven beneficial at this point, it will be necessary to examine them further. Therefore, the most immediate problem is to make sure that these protective measures against brucellosis will lead directly to its liquidation.
