The 'safety' tips for applying a pest control to a bovine

Prepare the cattle

Deworming is common in breeding (cattle and sheep). Simple gestures and adapted equipment allow you to work safely.

Accurate evaluation of the weight of the animals is necessary to define the volume of drug to be administered and to avoid under dosing. The restraining of cattle by means of an adapted device (corridor of contention for example) is also recommended to limit the risks of accidents related to the animals. These must have a clean and dry coat to promote the effectiveness of pour-on specialties.

Prepare the material

If the animal preparation is important, that of the material is just as important:

  • Equip yourself with protective clothing (gloves, long sleeves…)

  • Choose a dosing / administration device adapted to the volume to be administered

  • Check the functionality and cleanliness of the applicator gun

  • Make sure the entire device is waterproof
