Anyone know what this is

Postby Cross-7 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 2:26 pm

2 cows with it on the exact same spot on the right front shoulder.
I first thought it was something they were rubbing on but I have another starting with a single hairless dot about the size of a quarter.
I started spraying for flies more regular and one is getting better but this one isn’t.
None of the other cows have this

Don't know, but I noticed something similar on my bulls shoulder just today. His had an old dried up layer of skin peeling off of it as well. Im wondering if it was a reaction to a horse fly bite or something like that.

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

That is odd for ringworm (fungus). It has a linear pattern in a horizontal line. Ringworm is more dispersed in a random pattern. Often perfectly round dry hairless spots the size of a quarter.

It may be an injury. In regard to powdery patches that peel off as mentioned by talltimber, there is a condition that I often see on cows and bulls, between the inside of the thigh and udder on cows and between the inside of the thigh and scrotum on bulls. It is a thick scabby patch that can be dry or moist. It peels off. Usually worse in hot weather.

I believe that is mites, Ron.
