Homeopatic treatments

Our cattle's health

Recently there has been a lot of interest in reducing the use of antibiotics in farm animals and people. Each one of us is responsible for using these drugs properly to ensure maximum benefit to us and our animals and to all who follow by ensuring they don’t lose their effectiveness. One way that we have reduced the need for antibiotics is to keep our herd as healthy as possible by prevention. We do this mainly by homeopathic treatments. Our herd can be easily treated in their drinking water to prevent diseases such as mastitis, BVD, silage eye, Johnes disease, Leptospirosis, IBR, pneumonia, joint ill, red water, lice, ringworm and black leg. Homeopathic treatment is used the world over especially in organic farming and has been available in the UK since 1796. What a pity our own “powers that be” will not let us join their “Healthy Livestock” initiative unless we follow a narrow minded western medical path. Using a combination of both conventional and homeopathic treatments is surely the best way forward?
