I've seen this information before, but could not remember the "receipe." Which vitamins (and how much to mix with the mineral) have had some success in pinkeye prevention? A, D, & E? Where do you get these vitamins - Vet, COOP, feed dealer? We already use a Hi Mag mineral with IGR (an insecticide that is supposed to kill fly larvae in manure) and CTC (antibiotic) during the "fly season."<p>We are in North central Missouri and have heard many success stories and would like to try it this year, as the flies are already starting to get thick. Thanks.

Vitamin A is for eye health, but cattle on green grass get enough from turning beta carotine into vitamin A. Vitamin E helps the immune system, which could help in fighting mild cases of pinkeye. You can get an A,D & E powder from most feed stores.<p>Fly control and dark eye pigment are your 2 best methods of fighting pinkeye. Long sharp grasses also make pinkeye a problem. Proper stocking rates and cattle oilers are recommended.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada
