NC South Dakota
Perminthrin & Diesel with a Lewis cattle oiler.
IGR in the mineral.
Just last week put 1# of powdered garlic mixed in the salt. So well see if that helps any.... Just testing in one pasture for now.
Flies just seem to get worse every year, so just seeing what we can do.
The IGR costs about $2 a pair a summer for me. Thing is It only really works well if the neighbors use it too....
Garlic should be cheap.
If the calves gain weight better it easily pays for its self.
Perminthhrin is cheap, Diesel probably the biggest expense.
