ALTHOUGH lice infestation can occur in any season of the year, the heaviest infestations are found during the winter.
This build up of lice infestation normally starts in the autumn but if the cattle are treated by spraying at this period, the majority of the lice are killed and the build up is prevented.
Thus the old saying "Prevention is better than cure" certainly applies with regard to cattle lice.
