Manure Management


Alright, I’m going to tell it like it is.¬† Everyone needs to learn to manage their………… manure! ūüėÄ

No matter how many horses or other livestock you have or where you live, manure management should be your #1 priority.  This is a natural breeding ground for flies, mosquitoes, gnats and bots.  Eliminate the breeding ground, annihilate the population.  Ok, that is hopeful thinking on my part as these little annoyances propagate faster than I can kill the little buggers.  But with proper care I can slow them to a more manageable capacity. 

This is a never-ending process and more so in the warmer months of the year.

For a healthier environment

Managing Flying Insects


Ok, contrary to the title of this post, I’m not actually going to talk about the life of any flying insects.¬† But more of an admittance of how annoying they are to us.¬† And the health hazards they pose to our livestock.

Flies and the like will manifest in or near any barn, corral or pasture area that maintains animals.¬† They can and WILL become a health hazard if measures are not taken to prevent them from… well… living.

Let me explain
