Allicin, naturally derived from Garlic, fed in low concentrations has been found in US research on Horn Fly, to decrease external insect populations in livestock by up to 20%. Garlic is rich in the sulphur-containing compound Allicin which subsequently breaks down to a range of volatile sulphur-containing compounds. (Durunna & Lardner, 2021).
Molasses "attractants" have NOT been added to the blend minimising the risk of unintended outcomes (such as inadvertantly increasing parasite loads). Garlic acts as an attractant for animals meaning protein meal attractants are also kept to a minimum (2.5%).
Feeding rate 10-20g/100kg body weight. Cattle 40-100g/day, Sheep & Goats 5-10g/day.
