First, diesel is not environmentally friendly to your farm or ranch. Secondly, it's not approved for use, per label. Thirdly, "years and years" ago today's recommended oils didn't exist. But...use what you want. I trust the experts. :tiphat:


How is diesel not environmentally friendly?

I would not use diesel either because I have been covered in diesel in the sun and its not a lot of fun so I doubt it is very fun for the cattle. Plus, its like $3/g.

You don't use it to spray. Only in the back rub. They don't get covered with it.
