Promoting Herd Health
Allow us to help you keep your livestock healthy. Our oilers provide effective yearly parasite treatment for cows. Lice and other infestations cause your cattle to itch. They’ll seek to satisfy their instinct to scratch, which is where our powerful oilers come in. As the cows rub against the oiler, a topical insecticide is applied to the coat. Continuous scratching rubs the oil down to the hide to ensure full coverage. Don’t risk the infection of your herd. Parasites are a year-long concern:
Spring & Summer: Face flies, horn flies, stable flies, and mosquitos are all major pests that disrupt feeding behavior and spread diseases, such as pink eye.
Fall: As temperatures drop, flies keep warm under the coats of your cattle. Though not as visible, they still require treatment. In the fall our oiler also provides lice control.
Winter: Once all the adult lice are exterminated, nits (lice eggs) continue to hatch for up to 21 days. We provide the continuous treatment that is required to kill the lice as they hatch.
Additionally, we ensure your livestock receive an adequate mineral intake. Our 8.5-gallon oilers include mineral feeders for cattle so that your calving cows have a properly functioning immune system. When cows are pregnant, the fetus relies on the mineral intake of the mother to develop healthily. Our mineral feeders will provide the nutrients your cattle require.
Designed by a Cattleman, for Cattlemen
Our founder and the inventor of Lewis Cattle Oilers, Joe Lewis, developed our highly-effective pump system in the 1960s. Being a cattleman himself, Joe sought to solve the pest problems that afflicted livestock across the continent. Now, more than 50 years later, we continue to carry on the tradition of authentic cattle oiler dealers and dedicate ourselves to the complete satisfaction of our customers.
