The natural healing power of homeopathy from Heal with Ease can assist in building the immune system of cattle, horses and other animals to lower the attraction of buffalo fly.

Buffalo fly irritate cattle, horses and other animals by interrupting feeding and causing sores, particularly when infestations are high. This irritation however is not the only effect buffalo fly can have on horse and cattle health, they can also:

  • reduce beef cattle production by up to 16%
  • invite a small parasitic worm which causes skin lesions
  • cause sores which result in permanent hide damage, thus decreasing the value of the hide
  • cause legions which restrict the access of stock to the live export trade.
The Queensland DPI states that animals “in poor condition” will usually attract the heaviest buffalo fly infestations, as well as dark coated cattle, bulls, and older cattle. Interestingly, Bos Indicus cattle seem to carry high numbers of the parasite, but do not appear to be as severely affected as other breeds. 

A strong healthy animal is not a good home for parasites - fleas, ticks, flies, mosquitoes will naturally go to the weaker animals in an area, which is why Heal with Ease have found that cows in calf or lactating to feed their babies are often a candidate for buffalo fly infestations.

Using homeopathy remedies, Heal with Ease work with building the immune system of the animal. The homeopathic blend Heal with Ease have created for treating buffalo fly infestations will assist in relieving the burning and toxins that come from the bites, while at the same time building the system to create more immunity in the animal.

Cattle can be treated simply through the race with the remedy dissolved into a spray bottle or similar. Horses need just 2-3 drops inside the mouth. Ideally the remedy would be started before the season gets too hot, thereby avoiding the initial problem. This process should be repeated weekly, if possible, throughout the heat of Summer. The following year farmers should get onto it in mid to late Spring and aim to avoid the problem for the next season.
