Finding the best fly control for your cattle all depends on your goals and management practices. There are all different ways to control flies on cattle... sprays, pour-ons, dust bags, tubs, you name it.

Here at Riomax®, we offer a couple different feed-through fly control options in the form of tubs. We like tubs, because it ensures the cattle are consistently receiving fly control every time they consume the product. Plus, it's a 3-in-1 product (fly control, minerals, digestion pack) saving time and labor for you.

If you're wary of using a chemical kill (poison) to control flies, no need to worry. There are ways to fight flies without using chemicals that could potentially harm your biology.

By using natural repellants like garlic, you can reduce fly pressure on your herd and improve their gut health.

The Riomax® PG360-REPEL formula contains a heavy duty fly-fighting package, which includes natural anti-parasitic and antioxidants. It has proven to repel a wide variety of flies and insects on ranches all across the country.

Flies are more than just irritating to your cattle. Flies negatively impact weight gain, breed up, and overall herd performance.

According to Altosid IGR, horn flies cause an estimated $1 billion loss to North American ranchers annually! This is even higher than losses due to respiratory diseases or pinkeye.

Cattle mineral tubs are a great feed through fly control option. Lick tubs are infused with fly control, and allowing cattle to consume fly control very consistently, since they're constantly consuming the supplement.

It's important to ensure your tub-to-cow ratio is on point so that all cows are receiving adequate levels of fly control.

Mineral tubs with fly control usually need to be put out earlier than other fly control methods. Typically, it's recommended to begin feeding it 30 days before the last frost in the spring all the way through to 30 days after the first frost in the fall. So, while feed-through options have a longer feeding season, the benefits of consistent fly control often make it worth it.

"The cows look better than ever and the flies are a lot less! It sure is easy and it’s nice to control flies without using chemicals or poison!"

HYANNIS, NEBRASKA

"We really notice that those cows and bulls have way less flies on them. They are all spread out instead of being bunched up swinging their tails. I have stopped putting my oilers out in the field because this stuff works better!"

CABRI, SASKATCHEWAN

"Within 2 weeks of putting DefenderPAC® out to the bulls, they went from miserable and black with flies to just content and no flies. My neighbors want it now!"

BAKER, MONTANA

“The neighbors cows are all bunched up in one corner of the pasture and mine are spread out grazing. The flies aren’t bothering the calves bad, and I think the Fly Control is really working!"

TURTLEFORD, SASKATCHEWAN

"The upfront cost was something I struggled with for a long time until I understood how the results are paying me back. It really does seem like they eat less grass, my pastures last longer, I rarely have to treat anything, and I never have flies on my cows in the summer anymore..."

WESTON, WYOMING

"Had a VERY good year!! 1st year that there wasn’t any calves to treat and also had less flies. Been using tubs with DefenderPAC®"

GLADMAR, SASKATCHEWAN
