Elements of IPM for Dairy and Beef Cattle by Ken Wise & Keith Waldron

Are you using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices for flies on your cattle? The combination of stable, horn, face and house flies can cause economic losses in beef cattle and dairy production. The use of multiple control tactics are summed together into an IPM program. NYS IPM has two new publications on how your farming operation might measure up in the use of IPM for flies on cattle. Elements of IPM for dairy and beef cattle are now available on-line to assess how much IPM you have implemented in your dairy or beef cattle operation. This is a checklist of cattle IPM practices. Points are accumulated for each IPM tactic you implement.  Once the checklist is complete, add up the points. If you get at least 80% of the total points, you can be considered an IPM operation. This is a good way to check and see what you are doing well and what other practices you could implement.

Elements of IPM are available in both English and Spanish.

The following are the links to the publications:
