Cattle Coat (Cattle Deodorant to Deter Fly) CATTLE COAT Organica

Description

Cattle Coat – Ready to use Cattle Deodorant to Deter Fly

Cattle Coat ready-to-use organic solution for cattle is used to reduce flying annoyances.  Cattle Coat is an oil-based product that contains several Australian essential oils, and is USDS, NOP & BFA certified, is non-toxic and chemical-free. 

Cattle Coat is a cattle and livestock deodorant that deodorises odours that attracts flies, reduces stress and irritation and promotes contented grazing.

Buffalo flies irritate cattle, interrupt feeding and cause sores, especially when infestations are high. Trials in the wet tropics have shown that buffalo fly can reduce beef cattle production by up to 16%.  A small parasitic worm (Stephanofilaria spp.) is associated with buffalo fly bites and causes skin lesions. Sores from buffalo fly infestations result in permanent hide damage, decreasing the value of the hide. These lesions may also restrict access to the live export trade. Dark-coated cattle, bulls, older cattle and those in poor condition usually attract the heaviest infestations of flies. Bos Indicus cattle seem to carry high numbers but are not as severely affected as other breeds.

Recommended Application Methods:

  • Backrubbers
  • Rubbing Posts
  • Curtain Wipers
  • Pour-On
  • Spray-On
  • Hand Wipe

Cattle Coat is safe to use on old and young cattle and will not harm dung beetle populations, has a Nil Withholding Period (WHP) and is ideal for the meat and milk industries.

Cattle Coat is ready to use and is recommended to be applied via back rubbers but should not be used with non-approved APVMA products.

Control Buffalo Fly with non-chemical control wherever possible is recommended.  Tolerating some fly burdens and controlling flies without chemicals by using methods such as Cattle coat and dung beetles will help to minimise resistance problems and reduce possible residue risks.

Pack Sizes: 20L & 200L

Manufacturer: Organica Australia Pty Ltd

Buffalo Fly Control Products

Note – Organica Australia does not claim Cattle Coat “controls” buffalo fly or “aids” in buffalo fly control in cattle, but helps reduce flying insect annoyance.

    Cattle Coat's recommended application methods do include spray-on. The automatic sprayer would need to evenly cover and penetrate the coat on your cattle as they walk through. Cattle coat is oil-based, and provided they are only under a light mist/ sprinkler should not severely impact the efficacy. Cattle Coat is estimated to last up to 5 days under normal conditions.

    Cattle Coat is not a registered product with the APVMA and does not have host/pest situations or control claims listed. Cattle Coat is a cattle and livestock deodorant that deodorises odours that attracts flies but does not mention use on horses, only cattle.  We suggest speaking with the manufacturers of Cattle Coat for further clarification on 0411 184 273 ([email protected])

    Although oil-based, Cattle Coat will eventually leech out with continuous heavy rainfall, reducing the efficacy.

    On average, a 20-Litre drum of Cattle Coat will treat 100 head of cattle for six weeks when used through a backrub.

    Cattle Coat is not easily washed off with light rain as an oil-based product.  If the rain is likely torrential, we suggest not applying the Cattle Coat until it has passed and the cattle are reasonably dry.

    An application rate of 50mL per animal of Cattle Coat is adequate regardless of the animal's weight.  Application is best accomplished with a pressurised spray pack and spread evenly over the beast.  Inhouse testing by the manufacturer has found that application rates higher than 50mL/head will not guarantee longer or better fly control.

    Cattle Coat is ready to use solution without a set dose rate per head.  As it deodorises odours that attract flies, enough Cattle Coat must be applied to provide relief.

    The manufacturer of Cattle Coat does not list the individual ingredients used to make the product.  This is their intellectual property and kept secret to stop copycat imitations from being made.  The manufacturer only advises that Cattle Coat is an oil-based product that contains several Australian essential oils.

    Asked by Rosemary Beattie on January 2, 2022 11:39 am
    Answered by the admin

    Cattle Coat does not have a listed best before or use-by date.  The essential oils used to make Cattle Coat can expire with age and, depending on the type of oils, may take up to eight years.  As a new container of Cattle Coat is opened and it comes into contact with oxygen, oxidation begins.  The oxidation process involves the changes of oxygen bonds between cells into carbon bonds.  Indications that the oils may be expiring are (1) the smell of the CattleCoat had changed since you first opened the container, (2) the colour has changed, or it had become cloudy & (3) the consistency is thicker or thinner than it was when you opened it.  If this has occurred, then we would recommend disposing of the contents.

    Cattle Coat is applied as required.  The reapplication will depend on the fly pressure & irritation that cattle are experiencing.  It is recommended to delay treatment of cattle until fly worry is evident on the focus animals (those most susceptible to flies, such as bulls) or when animals are carrying more than 200 flies per animal (100 per side).

    Cattle Coat is used neat and on its own.  It is not mixed with any other oils or insecticides.  If you want to use insecticides such as Supona or Diazinon, the Cattle Coat is replaced with the Backrub Paraffinic Oil.  When using back rubbers, pre-soak backrub in a solution of Cattle Coat in a container (i.e. Drum, tub, or bin) for at least 4 hours.  Hang the backrub over the container to drain the excess solution for at least 10 hours.  When re-bottling the excess solution, strain through shade cloth to prevent blockage in the self-feeder mechanism (applicable to self-feeding backrubs only).  There is a youtube video to help explain the directions for use (click here)
