My yearlings have bald spots on their necks and shoulders. It seems like the hair is being rubbed off. Should I be worried? What is causing this? Or is it normal?

Are you feeding hay in a hay feeder that they can get their heads between bars? This time of year the two most common causes are rubbing on a feeder or lice.

For lice, I've been using Permectrin and water. 8oz will do 5 gallons. I use a weed sprayer and keep the spray away from the face and udder. This seems to nock the lice back intill spring worming.
