Awhile back, I posted looking for information on a more natural way to keep our livestock healthy. I know that there are books out there, but I haven't bought any. I did come across some information that I'm going to use. I thought I'd pass it on and if anyone knows if this works or doesn't, please post.
First, Shaklee's Basic H is supposed to work as a wormer. (Shaklee doesn't endorse it as such. ) One cup to 100 gallons of water. (This is for cattle.) Another cure, and one I've tried, is Diatomaceous Earth. I've used this for lice. Just sprinkle on the back of the animal. I use food grade, because I've added it to goat food to get rid of internal parasites. Some people say this works, some say it doesn't.
I also found a website www.farmsteadhealth.com. This has natural wormers and supplements for just about any animal. Rotating pastures often, keeping the barns clean and giving high quality foods all help to keep animals healthy. There's also a kelp supplement that is supposed to help. Lisa over at Lighthouse Farm uses this and says it works wonders.
Off to another day of housecleaning, yardcleaning, animal feeding , homeschooling, garden prep and praising my Lord!
