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:
- Rubbing Posts
- Curtain Wipers
- 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.
