Ectoparasites Farming Note

Ectoparasites (external parasites) affect cows throughout the year. During the summer, flies can be a big issue, whilst in the winter housed cows are susceptible to lice and mites. Whichever  parasite is present, there are multiple problems for the animals and farmer in terms of production and welfare. This Farming Note looks at lice, flies and mites and the suitable treatment methods for each.

Issued August 2011.
