Lice can suck the profits out of your beef and dairy cattle herds during the winter.
These cold-loving pests spread when animals bunch together in response to frigid temperatures, and we’ve already had plenty of those.
You can reduce potential lice problems on cattle by keeping new animals separate from your herd until you’ve given them a thorough louse treatment, generally two applications of a contact insecticide.
The first application kills active adults and immature lice, but it won’t destroy nits on the hide.
