Chris (hubby) won't be home from the switching and tagging class his job sent him on till thursday night. So we aren't gonna be able to treat Chloe until Friday. sigh
I'm gonna try and get someone to help me get ahold of her wiley butt before then but I wanted to make sure of what to do first.
Burrhead mentioned using old motor oil (might have some not sure) or diesal which I know we have some of. Also have a sprayer. But I don't know if that's a one time deal or if she needs to be re-treated like that.
Also there was a mention of it looking like lice on her head. I think Eprinex was mentioned. Gotta look that one up in the catalog I don't have any here but I could run up to Farmer's Co-op or Huffman & Gilmore if I need to.
I was thinking though that if it was lice wouldn't my bull calf have it too? Cause they are always lovin & rubbin on each other. His face is all handsome (he's getting that adult bull looking face to him now) and he has no bare spots and he's just doing the normal amount of head rubbing.
These 2 calves are basically my pets... my learning tools. I bottle fed that bull calf cause his momma wouldn't/couldn't. (no he's not overly friendly) I bought them both from my neighbor while he did his very brief go 'round with cows. He's a small man and afraid of them so he sold them all back at auction, minus these two calves.
I'm still rambling... sorry.. I'm not sleeping very well with hubby out of town and I'm still working on some coffee to get me motivated to get out there and paint some fence.
Anyways I gotta get outside and get busy.
P.S. Someone mentioned (I can't remember what they are called) those diesal rubbing things...I've seen them. You gotta put them somewhere where the cows HAVE to rub them on the way to another area don't you? or do they just wanna rub on them?
