Stay Lice Free from Housing to Turnout…… Guaranteed!*

The Best Advice

Heavy lice infestations cause irritation which results in reduced lying time and feeding leading to reduced weight gain. Itching and rubbing against feed barriers disrupts feeding and results in hair loss, most often over the neck and shoulders.

Treating up to five weeks pre-housing means:

  • Cattle are FREE from parasites weeks before housing; delivering higher weight gains.
  • What is more, Downland Guarantee cattle stay lice FREE from Housing to Turnout.*
  • The immune system has time to recover from parasite challenge pre-housing, possibly leading to better responses to respiratory vaccines.
  • Cattle cope better with the stress of housing.
  • Reduced risk of pneumonia.
