We have a very helpful range of farming remedies
Some of these are as follows:
We are seeing a lot of Pinkeye and Eye Issues with the dry season in Australia. For best results with this product you need to start working early.
It is believed that the causes of pink eye in sheep and goats are different to that of cattle. However, the symptoms are very similar and by using homeopathic medicine and farming remedies, conditions such as pink eye, eye abscess, cloudiness or opaqueness of the eyes can be treated with the same remedy at the onset.
At the first signs of pink eye, even in the conjunctivitis stage stock animals can be treated with the Heal with Ease Pinkeye Assist remedy. The earlier it is treated the quicker the results.
Cattle and sheep on the farm need to be checked when they are brought through the yards and any animal with cloudiness (pink eye) can be treated immediately with the Pinkeye assist remedy.
The pink eye treatment involves a simple spray on the nose, which is all that is required to help the healing process. In serious cases one may need to repeat the treatment 2-3 times over a few weeks
With all the early weaning happening in the dry areas of Australia this remedy is a great help. It would also be a great help to cattle affected by the trauma of the floods in the North.
Weaning is the process of removing a young animal from its mother. It needs to be done to maintain the health of both animals. While it is a physical process, supporting the emotional side of the process will help with a smother transition through the process. Maintaining body condition and a healthy immune system is a great asset in any production system.
The Heal with Ease Weaning/Rehoming Remedy has been specially designed and formulated to help support the weaning process.
We all know that stress will lower the immune system whether it is emotional or physical stress. For the first time you can now work on the emotional side of weaning stress. Stress is a major cause of weight loss at weaning time. Using this farming remedy will help your stock to wean or transport with as little stress as possibly.
Lowering the stress load will improve the immune system helping your animals to gain weight as quickly as possible.
Testimonial: “For the last 3 years that I have run this program it has been interesting to see our cattle just keep going forward after weaning. This has also showed up in the fact that when we did worm tests in the Spring, coming out of Winter we have had nil to low counts so the weaners have not needed dosing for worms, saving us time and money.” C. Franklin, Beaudesert Qld
Weaning of offspring and supporting mum after weaning are vital for the emotional health of both.
Best results are achieved by separating both mum and offspring for a period of time to allow them to feel this emotional stress/grief state. Give one dose at this point and then again the following day.
Buying in new stock is another form of weaning as the animals will be relocated from one property to another, and often through saleyards which places more stress on the animal. We use the Weaning Remedy for these situations to help ease the livestock into their new home and have found it beneficial in maintaining weight and health of the animals.
With the sudden onset of a very wet period of rain in the north be on the look out for 3 Day. Having been dry for so long it would not surprise me at all if there was a run of 3 Day in the remaining stock.
We have a specially formulated farming remedy to help with the symptoms of 3 Day Sickness. For best we recommend having the remedy on had and treating early. This will help save a lot of the major problems this illness.
Bovine ephemeral fever, more commonly known as three day sickness, is a virus found in cattle which usually runs a short course, however can run longer without treatment and lead to severe sickness, and sometimes death.
Symptoms of three day sickness can include:
- a sudden onset of fever- as high as 41 degrees Celcius
- a sudden and severe drop in milk production from milking cows
- a cease in the animals eating and drinking
- depression of the animal
- large amounts of saliva drooling from the animals mouth
- a stringy nasal discharge
- watery eyes
- shifting lameness
- reluctance to move particularly among heavier animals
- swollen joints and jaw.
These symptoms will usually begin and cease all within the first two days, and by day three the affected animal is usually standing again and will begin to eat. However, lameness and weakness may last for another two or three days.
In the vast majority of cases after its short course of three day sickness will rapidly improve toward a complete recovery. However, the disease can vary in severity, with some animals showing only slight symptoms for about 24 hours, while a small number may stay down for many weeks.
Sick milking cows will usually drop production by at least 50%, with yield returning nearly to normal after about three weeks. Cows affected late in lactation, however, will often dry off. Mastitis sometimes develops, with a marked rise in the somatic cell count.
Bulls and fat cows tend to show more severe signs than other cattle. Such animals lose condition rapidly and are slow to regain their body weight. A proportion of bulls will suffer temporary infertility lasting from three to six months because of the high fever. Permanent infertility is uncommon but can occur.
A small proportion of animals that go down may suffer a permanent paralysis due to damage to the spinal cord- either as a direct effect of the virus, or due to injuries if they fall awkwardly.
Cows in advanced pregnancy may abort, however this is probably because of the fever, rather than a specific effect of the virus.
Although most of the herd can be affected, deaths from ephemeral fever are uncommon and rarely involve more than 1% of the herd. Death is usually the result of misadventure or being down for a long period.
As with all injuries and illness the quicker you can help the animal the less sever the problem. So maintain condition and a quicker recover.
A Heal with Ease farmer from NSW had the following to say about the homeopathy remedies for three day sickness:
“Just an up date on the heifer with 3 day. She was so sick. On the Saturday afternoon use the 3 Day Assist remedy on her nose. She was just sitting there. I could even rub her around the eyes.
“Sunday morning I went to retreat and as soon as I got close to her she got up. I could not get any more on her.
