TRAC Beef & Sheep Tech Tip - Autumn 2016

Updated: Jun 1


STAGGERS - A POTENTIAL THREAT THIS SEASON


Staggers is a major problem on many farms affecting both sheep and cattle, and typically begins as the season is finishing and the pasture gets stressed, or after summer rains. If you are seeing any of these symptoms...

  • Livestock literally staggering around, struggling on back legs

  • Standing in dams/panting/heat stressed when it's not THAT hot

  • Erratic behaviour, ‘spooky’

  • Laminitis – sore in all 4 feet

  • Scours

  • Impaired fertility

  • Slow growth rates/BWT loss

  • Death

……there is a potential problem! WHY The plant has a natural response to stress to help it resist against pests and disease, however some of these are toxic to livestock. FIX IT Dilution is the best cure i.e. Feed stock forage that is not affected. However, this is not always feasible. A toxin binder will assist to deactivate the toxins and is a cost effective way to manage these issues preventing losses in productivity. We use Elitox due to the vast amount of positive trial work in sheep and cattle. Our weatherproof loose lick minerals are a good way to get the toxin binder into the diet:
