I have two Scottish Highland cows and I've just bought Ivomec pour-on parasite control. Will it be effective even though my cows have long coats?

My clients with Scottish Highland cattle prefer injectable ivomec because they feel that the pour-on burns or discolours the hair along the topline. They refuse to try any of the newer products so I can't comment on those. The drugs do penetrate the skin as long as it reaches it, so pour along the part, or create a part along the topline. <br>V

<br>: I have two Scottish Highland cows and I've just bought Ivomec pour-on parasite control.

On Hereford cattle I have never observed any discoloration of the hair along the backline with Ivomec or Eprinex. Might react differently in other parts of the country. I really like the results of either product, applied correctly at the right dose, the right time of year and that may depend on where you live.<br>Mike.
