Worming ?

Postby drock15l » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:44 pm

I got a couple pairs a month ago and not sure if they have been wormed. If I do worm them and they have already been wormed am i going to hurt them in any way?

I don't have a chute at the moment so what would you recommend for a pour on. One calf is 3 months old and another is 5 months. Assuming cows are bread but not confirmed

For that few, I'd drizzle some safeguard on some feed.

The one thing you may have to worry about if they have already been wormed is knocking the good "bugs" out of their stomachs. A dose of probiotics can put them back on track easy enough.

feed them and go around behind them and spray them with a dosage gun on the back
