Effective Fly Control Solutions for Livestock during Fly Season

Fly control during fly season

Fly season is here, and it’s time to implement effective fly control measures for your animals. Flies can quickly multiply, causing discomfort and health issues. Feed fly control supplements and use targeted products to keep your livestock healthy.

Feeding Fly Control Supplements

Feed Purina High-Octane Fly Control Supplement with Clarify to cattle, horses, goats, sheep, and pigs. It passes through the digestive system, targeting fly eggs in the manure. Start feeding 30 days before the last frost in spring for optimal results.

Alternative Fly Control Options

Consider insecticides, fly ear tags, pour-on treatments, loose minerals, and mineral tubes for fly control in cattle. Provide 4 oz of loose minerals per cow, monitor intake, and ensure feeders and water sources are accessible. Recommended products:
