Fly management programs on feedlots and pastures need to be proactive. When cattle are less agitated, they stay on feed and are more productive.
How ClariFly® Larvicide can help
Fight The Flies That Cause Your Cattle Discomfort
Stable flies, horn flies, house flies and face flies could all have an impact on beef cattle development. Unchecked, fly populations can grow quickly and have a direct effect on cattle feeding and weight gain.
Impact flies can make on Beef Cattle
- Reduced weight gain
- Changes in grazing patterns
- Decreased feed efficiency
- Disease – Pinkeye and Heifer Mastitis
Horn flies are one of the biggest threats to beef cattle. They feed on the cows’ blood and are also linked to reduced calf weaning weights. Stable flies also feed on the blood of the animal causing similar problems as a horn fly.
Face flies, although non-biting, can also spread disease. They cluster around the cow’s eyes, mouth, nose or any open wounds to feed on fluids. Face flies are the primary vector of Moraxella bovis, the causative agent of pinkeye in cattle.
Interrupting The Fly Life Cycle
ClariFly® Larvicide is most effective as part of an IPM program built around planning, implementation and evaluation in a feedlot or on pasture. ClariFly® Larvicide goes to work in manure, stopping larval development and decreasing fly populations.
Horn flies can take up to 40 blood meals a day, affecting cattle weight gain and production.
50 - 60
When stable fly populations reach 50-to-60 stable flies per animal, you can see a dramatic reduction in performance.
