Farm Management

Herbal (1)-Conventional (10) 1-10 Scale: 5

Parasite Protocol:
First line of defense is prevention. I use a high quality cattle mineral. Hay is fed in feeders that exclude feet or bodies from fouling the hay. Waters are kept at a distance from lounging areas, reducing the occurrence of contamination. Pasture is rotated. Typically, unless something like giardia is encountered, the herd is dewormed on average once a year, based on FAMACHA scores and body condition, usually with double or triple dose ivermectin. Coccidiosis is treated with a spice blend normally, with Sustain III for backup and weaned kids.

Vaccination Protocols: No Vaccinations
