Tools for the Job - Fly Control and Prevention/Treatment of Pinkeye in Cattle

Now is the time to get the right tools to prevent the spread of pinkeye. Merck Animal Health has the tools for the job and can customize a three-pronged approach that fits your operation. We encourage cattle pinkeye vaccines, cattle ear tags, pour-on pesticides and other fly control options. Always read and follow label directions.
