EAR TAG TO CONTROL FLIES IN CATTLE: GOOD FUNCTIONING IF FITTED CORRECTLY

Nuisance caused by flies, it is a standard part of spring and (late) summer.

These annoying tormentors not only cause nuisance and unrest for your livestock, they can also transmit germs.

 

Outside the barn the flies appear early in the spring, mainly after the first warm days.

We distinguish flies that suck blood and flies that eat dung, carrion, animal secretions, etc.).

EYE DAMAGE CAUSED BY IMPROPERLY PLACED EAR TAGS

The choice of fly control products for cattle is wide.

Varying from Pour-on products to special fly-control ear tags.

Unfortunately, I regularly see that cattle suffer eye injuries as a result of incorrectly applied fly-control ear tags.

 

 

 

           WRONG, (INSIDE EAR) INSERTED EAR TAG

INSERT EAR TAG CORRECTLY

The ear tag must always be applied on the outside (back of the ear).  Not on the inside of the ear.

In this way,  eye damage by the ear tag is avoided and the fly repellent is distributed by the cow itself via neck and shoulder.

The effectiveness of the ear tag is therefore much more.
