In the Beginning
Scours in sheep – I remember two of the first times we really saw major results on stock animals very clearly. The first one was when a flock of the sheep Eric was managing at Banalasta Station, near Bendemeer in NSW, came down with scourers. It was a dietary scourers, not worm related. We decided we could use this opportunity to trial the remedies in the water trough. We used homeopathic Arsenicum and Nux Vomica. Putting a few drops of each remedy in every water trough the sheep had access to. The results were quick and profound. This way of farming naturally was very impressive for us.
Calving complications – A little while later during the calving season Eric rang to say he had a cow with retained placenta after they had to manually deliver her calf. They’d been trying for half an hour to release the placenta but it wasn’t happening and to put more stress on the situations the cow was rejecting her new calf, so there were bonding issues as well. After some research into the best remedy for the situation I saw the most amazing healing I’d ever experienced. Eric went to the headbail and dropped 2 drops of homeopathic Pulsatilla on the cows nose. Within the minute the cow had released and expelled her placenta. The next remedy we used was homeopathic Sepia to help her bond with her calf. Truly a beautiful and life changing experience for us.
“On Deepwater Station we have been using Heal with Ease as our primary animal health consultants for many years with great success. We have found their products particularly useful at weaning time for both sheep and cattle. Using their calf weaning protocol as part of our overall protocol we find the calves calm down faster with less stress, they leave the yards in better condition and don’t seem to get as many of the coughs, colds and other infections they often get after weaning.
The protocol is easy to administer, very cost effective and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to improve the health of their calves during and post weaning.”
