Hi, Our 6 month old heifer is plagued by horn flies. We are concerned because there are so many of them. We would rather not use the pour-ons if the flies can be successfully managed another way. We really don't want to use chemicals in our routine maintanence. Right now she is rotated on pasture every day to two days. Something that she would walk through would have to be portable by hand since we do not have a tractor. If anyone knows of anything (supplement, topical, trap, anything) that would help please know that our heifer and we thank you!
