A cattle oiler applies a hide-deep topical insecticide to your livestock as they satisfy their natural instinct to scratch. The insecticide leaves a residue on the cattle’s coat and hides to kill pests on contact. As the fly season wears on, fly populations generally increase. Unlike ear tags which lose their potency over time, the Lewis Cattle Oiler provides the opportunity for year-long re-treatment. This ensures the insecticide remains at full strength to kill pests as long as they are present.

As cattle scratch, the wick compresses against the center chain causing drops to squeeze out and spread onto the coat. While they are scratching the adjustable pump recharges the wick. You get effective control without over-treatment. The 8-chain harness also provides extra protection for the wick while providing an aggressive scratching surface for your cattle.

The horn fly has developed resistance to ear tags. As a result, some chemical companies have suggested using 2 ear tags. This, however, doubles costs and the risk of infection. Prove an ear tag did not provide adequate horn fly control and the manufacturing company will usually refund your money. Who, for instance, pays for your lost time or lower weight from the stresses of a trip through a chute? The continuous treatment to the hide of your herd provided by the Lewis Cattle Oiler is second to none.

Any one-time control product is risky. Studying the life cycle of lice reveals the risk of herd re-infestation from not using continuous application.

Even if all nymphs and adult lice are killed, they will still leave behind nits that hatch every day, for up to 21 days.

Most topical insecticides leave a residue that will continue to kill the nymphs as they hatch. Meanwhile, if it rains or the residue doesn’t last a full 21 days, lice may reappear (even in winter after a one-time fall treatment).

No cattleman wants to see any animal become re-infested with lice. For the cow/calf operator, it is a real dilemma. Don’t risk running your pregnant cows through the chute. Don’t let her pass lice onto her calf. Let her scratch, meanwhile treating her. Keep her and her calf healthy and happy year-round!
