    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone has used or know of an all natural wormer.
    Something along the organic path. Not the kind that everyone seem to have for sale. I am sure they are great but I was just looking for one I can make myself.


    Thanks for the Help

    Heard lots on Shaklee Basic H, Google it and see what you find. Not sure if it falls into that category.
    Heard also of tobacco, pennies....and the such.

    Why would you want something organic??

    My husband swears by the tobacco. He said just mix chewing tobacco in with their feed. I still use safe guard pellets though.

    When I got my first milk cow I didn't want to use chemical wormer either. I tried Basic H and DE. She almost died of worms by the time I conceded and wormed her. Be careful trying to use natural stuff. It will help if you have lots of land to rotationally graze. In nature cows would graze an area and move on, not coming back to that area for a long time. Now that they are kept fenced in on fairly small acreages they need some help because of the worm buildup.
