Pinkeye and Fly Management Made Easier

In the summer, the most popular searches at On Pasture are about how to treat Pinkeye. Why? This is when fly populations seem to reach their peak, and one fly in particular, the face fly, is a big part of spreading pink eye through a herd.

But they’re not the only problems for livestock. Horn flies and stable flies are biting and feeding on the shoulders, backs, and legs of your cattle reducing weight gain and milk production.

To make your lives easier, I’ve gathered all the information I have at On Pasture into one, easy-to-read ebook. In “Pinkeye and Fly Management Made Easy,” you’ll learn about your fly enemies and what you can do about them. It includes:

• Farmer Fly Trap hacks that really work,

• The latest research on a supplement that reduces fly populations by about 50% – along with instructions for buying and serving it up.

• How to work with parasitoids, birds, and dung beetles to make your life easier.

• Culling to improve herd genetics to reduce fly and parasite worries.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.


  1. Good morning, I raise cattle on pasture and am also a ruminant nutritionist feeding cows across Western NY. Over the years have tried many fly products with my own herd and others. We currently use the topical spray Fly Ban and literally have no flies on our cattle. I use every two weeks and simply walk cows on pasture giving them a squirt of Fly Ban as I walk.
