Prevention is better than cure. Whether calving, lambing or calf-rearing thorough attention to achieving maximum hygiene can be a bit of a Cinderella job on some units - a chore that no-one relishes doing.

But just because disease microbes are out of sight, they musnt be out of mind. Infections are waiting for the first opportunity to strike stock. 

Treating accommodation with effective farm disinfectants is the only way to reduce the risk of multiple serious disease problems. The calf pen, floor walls and all equipment needs disinfecting.

TK Swordsman is a wide-spectrum effective disinfectant that kills a range of farm disease organisms.

COVERAGE:-  5 litres of TK Swordsman covers approximately 1000 square metres at the stronger 1:30 "Crypto" dilution.

TK Swordsman is particularly valuable in being effective against cryptosporidium, the commonest cause of calf scours and a particularly tough disease to control.

This is because the Crypto ‘spores’ remain an infection risk in the environment for up to six months and their tough outer wall is resistant to regular disinfectants.

Eating or drinking as few as ten Crypto spores, known as “oocysts” can cause a calf to get scours, and without effective hygiene billions can be present, all totally invisible to the naked eye.

Testing carried out at Moredun, the Edinburgh animal health institute, has proved that TK Swordsman is effective against Cryptosporidium.

TK Swordsman Disinfectant is also European Standard tested to kill other high-risk organisms including E. coli, Salmonella, Staph. aureus, ringworm, and infectious yeasts. 

TK Swordsman is available in 5 litre containers available through farm health distributors, contact us on 01772 690131 for your nearest stockist.

How to use TK SWORDSMAN Disinfectant:-



Step 1) The area being cleaned must be completely cleaned of organic matter. making sure to remove dried in dung and straw and to make sure to pay particular attention to corners and angles between walls, ceilings and floors.


Step 2) We advise using a Caustic Foam Cleaner, such as "Inciprop Extra".

Step 3) Rinse & allow the area to dry thoroughly.


Step 4) Dilute TK SWORDSMAN Disinfectant at the desired rate (1:30 for OOCYSTS, 1:100 for general purpose disinfection).


Step 5) Use a power washer fitted with a foaming lance . Avoid excess application as this can result in premature downward drift that will reduce contact time.


Step 6) Allow minimum contact time of 12 hours . No need to rinse, but get rid of puddles and allow to dry.
