Organic control of buffalo fly in cattle : LUSENET : David's Organic Forum : One Thread

Hi, We're establishing an organic cattle farm at Hattonvale in Southeast QLD with Droughtmaster and Droughmaster Xs. We're having a lot of problem with buffalo fly, and I'd appreciate any short or long term solutions to this problem. Thanks for your help, Nicole.

Refer to an letter in the Organic Gardener mag Aut 2001. Use 1ltr cooking oil, 10ml neem oil, 10ml tea tree oil, 10ml eucalyptus oil. Soak a sponge in this mixture and dab around the head, backbone and around tail of the cow.
