It is time to think about lice control, especially for yearling animals. As the winter has been mild and warmer, the lice are coming sooner. Using a pour on lice/worm treatment can help in several ways.
- The comfort of the animal as lice can be painful and irritating.
- Rubbing and itching that will leave bald spots and result in the loss of body heat.
- Body condition drops due to the loss of nutrition as the lice feed.
- The destruction of buildings, fences, and feeders as the animals have the relentless urge to rub on everything.
Treating for lice can save you many repairs as well as keeping animals more comfortable and better looking as we head into spring.
