I have been feeding Heat mineral, from Vitaferm. It has garlic (for flies) and another ingredient for the fescue (capsaicin - chili peppers, cinnamon and cloves) which helps with the circulation. We have almost no fly or tick problem, and do not pour, but we also used Long Range wormer earlier this spring.
I hope that helps some...


What does Heat run a bag approximately? I just bought Purina W/R Fly Control medicated 5600 this morning and it was $35.50/bag I believe.

I'd have to look at my last receipt, but if I remember correctly, it is about $70/100. I buy 100 pounds at a time. So comparable.

Can we, as producers, even use a mineral with CTC in it, without getting a script from VET?

No, need a vfd.

I just called for one the other day. But, I'm mixing my own. Vet gal said she had only talked to one other producer for that. Everyone else is buying pre mixed. I am used to mixing mine, since Purina didn't offer it with hi mag until the vfd came out. I guess they figured you didnt need ctc when you also needed hi mag. I feed hi mag yr round.

If you cross the river before, leave a good horse on this side.

The last pallets of heat I bought ran me 30.50 without ctc. I buy 3 pallets at a time, so get a small discount. The medicated was around 37$ a bag, I decided it wasn’t worth it. My vet has told me the amount they consume from the mineral does nothing anyways.
We will see how that works out this year, flys and ticks are already out in full force.
