Aside from the obvious irritation, flies are also responsible for the spread of significant cattle diseases such as summer mastitis, salmonella and New Forest Eye (Moraxella Bovis).
Blowflies are a common issue for sheep if left untreated can result in maggots and in the worst case, death.
Not only are they irritating to beef cattle, but flies can also have detrimental effects on their health. For example, the female face fly can cause damage to eye tissues, which can lead to pink eye.
Keep your flock happy by maintaining a fly free coop. Flies can irritate as well as spread infection. They discourage egg-laying as well as transmitting bacterial diseases.
