Flies are a continuous threat to cattle producers because they can significantly impact the well-being and economic value of the herd. Flies interrupt grazing and can reduce weight gain. In fact, horn flies can reduce yearlings' weights by up to 18%.1 Up to $68/head can be lost due to overpopulation of flies, and a total industry loss of $1 billion for the entire United States.2 No producer wants to lose money, especially when there is a solution to the problem.2
Beyond economics, flies impact cattle comfort and health and cause:
These impacts can reduce weight gain and milk production, making fly control ear tags an important part of a target control point fly mitigation and management program.
Elanco offers customized parasite solutions to control flies and a product line that fits with integrated rotation management (IRM) programs for all production styles.
