Each horn fly drains blood and profits from your herd 20 to 30 times per-day. Other flies, such as face flies, stable flies, and house flies are known carriers of costly diseases such as pinkeye and mastitis. Their annoyance and irritation to cattle interferes with normal grazing patterns and reduces weaning and yearling weight gain. Economic losses to cattle producers due to fly problems have been estimated at more than $800 million annually.
This year, instead of reacting after the flies arrive, take control of the problem before it starts. Around-the-clock fly control is possible with ROLYX™ low-moisture block supplements from CRYSTALYX. Each contain performance-proven RABON Oral Larvicide.
HOW ROLYX™ WORKS
A. Livestock consume RABON as they lick ROLYX.
B. The RABON® passes through the animal’s digestive system.
C. Livestock manure now contains RABON that kills larvae before they reach the fly stage.
