Champion Animal Health – JustFLY
About the Company:
At Champion Animal Health, they strive to develop top-quality products for cow fly control at the best prices in the industry. Their goal is to provide the best solutions for livestock producers and the global food production industry. They are an accomplished cattle fly control company, and in their 15 years of experience they have treated more than 50 million head of cattle.
About the Solution:
Flies have caused an estimated $4.19 billion in losses in the US market alone, according to Dr. Dave Taylor. The four types of fly that affect cattle are the stable fly, horn fly, face fly and house fly. These flies can cause weight loss, transmit diseases, reduce milk production, and much more. Because of this, the use of fly control for cattle is vital to maintain the health and productivity of livestock.
Champion Animal Health’s JustiFLY® line of products for fly control for cattle breaks the life cycle of all four types of flies. Their cow fly control products do this without harming dung beetles. Available in liquid, salt, and feedthrough options, their JustiFly® products are EPA-approved for pasture cattle, feed yard cattle and dairy cattle. All products are made in the USA and have helped treat more than 50 million head of cattle.
