Lice are mainly a problem with housed cattle in the winter. Lice can reduce cattle productivity and also downgrades the leather. Symptoms include itching, hair loss, hide damage and anaemia (sucking lice).
There are sucking and biting lice:

  • Sucking lice pierce the skin and suck the blood and can cause anaemia. They tend to be found around the head and neck of cattle.

  • Biting lice feed on skin debris, blood and scabs. They tend to be found on the neck, shoulders, back and rump.
