    Hi Everyone,
    Does anyone know of a cattle wormer that can be mixed in water? We got the Dexter bulletin about a week ago and a guy in there mixed a cup of something with 50 gallons of water every six weeks or so to worm his animals. I think it was Shaklee something or other. I searched the Shaklee sites but can't find anything for cows, and of course I can't find the bulletin. :(

    Checked Tractor Supply Co. yesterday and they only have the wormer blocks and Ivermectin. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    SBJ

    SBJ,
    they were probably talking about the soap, Shaklee Basic H soap. I don't believe Shaklee endorses it for worming, but I have heard many use it that way. I know Joel Salatin does. I looked in his book salad bar Beef and he uses 1 tablespoon to 5 gallons of water which translates to just over 1 cup per hubdred gallons. He says he's been using it for 10 years.
    Maybe Google it and see what you can research.

    Thanks Carol. I think it had a number behind it, like Shaklee 620. Soap, huh. :eek:

    Thanks again,

    I am about 99.9% certain it would have been Shaklee Basic-H.

    Well, I must have made up the part about the number. It's heck getting old. :)

    Searched around and found the articles by Joel Salatin and a partial one from Ken. Looks interesting. Does anyone know a good place to order Shaklee Basic H from? Any feed stores carry it, or do you have to order it off the internet?

    Thanks for your time,
    SBJ

    Shaklee is sold through local distributions - something like Avon. If you go to www.shaklee.net I think it has a search option by zip code. You can order directly from them at www.shaklee.com. (I may have the two sites reversed.)

    I use diatomaceous earth in water. My DH does it and I'll get back to you with the right mix to use.
