I figure my cows were born with fly control, as long as it doesn't freeze off during winter they can swat flies all summer long.

I tried the garlic mineral and it lessend the fly load by about 1/2 on mine. Not as effective as IGR or spray, but it did help.

Wonder if it would affect taste of meat if fed to calves being fattened?

I know if a dairy cow eats onion tops, the milk tastes like onions. I would think you might get pre-garlic'ed meat!!

This seems more like something a stoner would find out, rather than a scientist that is getting paid
