Fly season can certainly affect the performance and overall comfort of your herd, so it’s important to take the right steps when preparing for fly season. Determine to do something about your horse flies. Use sprays, rubs, ear tags, or other cattle supplies. One of the best ways to protect your herd from horn flies is Wind & Rain Mineral from Purina.
