Fly Control at Hegg Mill
Fly control is a huge deal to any of your animals’ comfort and happiness. Flies cause problems to the farmer and the animal. On average the biting insects feed off your animals’ blood 20-30 times a day. This causes your animal to use more of their energy at fighting off flies than growing and producing their product. Poor reproductive performance and calf development can be linked to the lack of fly control.
At Hegg Mill we make it a priority to not only keep your animals healthy internally, we also want to keep your animals safe from any insects that could harm them.
