I like to use them when the herd is due for a working and I'm tied up doing other things. I'll put them out a few weeks before I catch and use pour on, feel it buys a little time and gets some gut worms too

Safeguard also comes in mineral form. Next your mineral runs out, use it instead.

It is a good product and sure helps in a pinch with no facilities. The problem is, in MOST herds, the mature cows don't really need de-worming - but they will get the most of the product. Any way to sort your cattle into "age" groups?

Good luck with that..i don't even like walking close behind them when they know I'm there...they very seldom miss, their target...
It's that time of year, where cattle go from being conservatives,too liberals...
