I'm calving now & the flies are getting bad. Is there anything to control flies on newborn calves? I was thinking of something I could apply after the calf is dried off. What about fly control for the cows? They're on pasture 24/7. I have been feeding the mineral with igr for horn flies but they don't seem to be consuming enough of that to help either. The cows have plenty of brush to scratch themselves on, so I'm not sure a cattle oiler would be a solution either.... not sure they would use it. What have you been using that has been successful?
