Ivomec

Postby Ned Jr. » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:58 am

Does anyone know where a person can buy Ivomec online? I usually buy through valley vet but it never seems to be available anymore. All the other online sights I’ve found it’s unavailable also. Seems like it’s been a few years since I’ve been able to find any.

Thanks but when you go into that it says it’s out of stock too. I’ve seen it at Big R and Tractor Supply but usually only small bottles.

It's genetics. :shock: :wink:

The Latest HOT Topic
By Kit Pharo | No Comments | March 29, 2018
I just thumbed through the latest DROVERS magazine. It seems that the latest hot topic within the status
quo beef industry is parasite control – with an emphasis on deworming. There was one article on
deworming and many advertisements for drugs and chemicals that are supposed to keep your cattle
healthy. In truth, however, the use of drugs and chemicals does nothing but create more and more drugaddicted
cattle. Today’s status quo cattle cannot live without their drugs. No one gains except the big
pharmaceutical companies.
I saw a quote in the deworming article that I thought was worth sharing. Tom Craig, retired Texas A&M
veterinarian, said, “Twenty percent of the herd will have 80% of the worms.” If that statement is true,
and I have no reason to think it is not, then I want you to consider how quick and easy it would be to
totally eliminate the need for chemical dewormers. The big pharmaceutical companies would love that,
wouldn’t they? STOP treating your cattle for parasites – and get rid of the drug addicts. This will allow
your cattle to develop a higher and higher level of genetic parasite resistance.
Most of our PCC cowherds have gone two decades without any chemical treatments for parasite.
We have cooperative cowherds in a variety of environments from Minnesota to hot, humid, fescue
country in Missouri and Mississippi and all the way to the high-plains desert. We also have cooperative
herds from the southern plains of Texas all the way to the northern plains of Montana and North Dakota.
NO ONE has as much bred-in parasite resistance as Pharo Cattle Company – because no one else has
ever tried to select for genetic parasite resistance.
Quote Worth Re-Quoting –
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ~ Albert
Einstein

Hey Ned Jr., are you after external or internal parasites?

We had no satisfaction with the generic Ivermectin this year. First time ever. About 500 cows were treated twice..... We switched to a product called BOSS, ( same as the old Lice-Off but you don't mix with water) and they quit scratching and losing hair.

Worms may be another issue later.

I am a believer there is a genetic factor to almost everything. But my memories of pre-Ivomec days keep me from wanting to revert back. Also, when I sell bulls and females into others herds I’d like for them to be as clean as possible. We only worm once a year and don’t really have a big problem with either internal or external worms or parasites. I prefer using Ivomec Plus, My vet says we don’t have liver flukes but my parents swear up and down we used to. Our fields often don’t have water running into them but always have water running out due to springs. I think keeping the cattle out of those fields at times and using ivomec plus it’s possible I could have eradicated them but I still like to hit them with Ivomec Plus if possible.

"Kit Pharo,,,,,,, the Al Gore of the cattle business." :lol: :lol: :lol: Well put, Gcreek.

Pharo doesn't deworm because he doesn't want to put any money in the bulls he offers for sale. :shock:
He is a survivor, I have to say. :D


------------------------------------
As for Ivomec, Ned Jr., it has been proven cattle have built an immunity to avermectics and they have an efficacy of barely 50%
for deworming. Works well for lice and grubs, but if you are wanting to deworm, my advice is to use something else.

Here is a link for some information that might shed some light for anyone wanting to sort through it. I have a lot of respect
for Dr. Don Bliss and that's where I learned what little I know about deworming. Hope this helps.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Pharo... People are either drunk on his koolaid or can't stand his philosophies, seems like there is no middle ground.
