Dr. Roger Moon, retired from the University of Minnesota discusses the different kinds of flies that can bother your cows, workers and neighbors. Stable flies bite, cause cows to bunch, reduce milk production, breed mainly in soiled cow and calf bedding, and pretty much stay on the premise. House flies breed in wetter manure, annoy people, and spread off premise to bother neighbors. Routine premise sprays and fogs can keep numbers of both kinds low in confined spaces, but targeted source reduction through debris management outdoors is a more sustainable approach. Listen to Dr. Moon discuss these issues and ask him questions. View at https://mediaspace.umn.edu/media/t/1_9zgnkive?st=12&ed=3469
