Buzz Off – Repel Flies and Biting Insects

Getting the best out of summer grazing to keep stock growing on target, can be a perennial problem for livestock farmers.

Grazed grass is your most cost effective feed input providing important nutrients to livestock, however it is well known that it can be deficient in many of the micro-nutrients essential for growth and performance. Grass quality also can be very variable and its nutritional value starts declining from mid-summer on wards.

 
Keeping flies and biting insects under control is another problem with grazing stock over the summer months.
