Protecting Your Herd: Guide for safeguarding your livestock against flies and internal parasites

Flies can bring devastating financial loss to cattle producers, costing them approximately 20 pounds of lost weight gain in some cases. This makes pest management a crucial part of livestock operations.

Elanco Beef Cattle Senior Technical Consultant, Dr. Thach Winslow spoke with RFD-TV’s own Tammi Arender about the impact flies can have on your herd, ways producers can help alleviate flies in their operation, and if resistance is something we see in flies.
