forage based parasite management

Asked January 3, 2017, 6:23 PM EST

Plz, if you can help. My cattle have parasites but I do not want to use meds any more. I heard about forage based medicinal pastures with dandelion, tobacco and chicory. If you have any info or can direct me to someone that does. We already practice pasture rotation, I would like a medicinal pasture to rotate cattle into.

I can not recommend a course of action like this (dandelion, tobacco and chicory) as it isn't research based.

I would tell you that anthelmintics that are used to deworm cattle are the same ones used to deworm people in other countries.
