Livestock Calendar: Important Highlights for October
• In the occurrence of Foot and Mouth Disease, treat the affected part of the livestock with 1% Potassium Permanganate solution. • If vaccines for illnesses such as Foot and Mouth, Haemorrhagic Septicaemia, Black Quarter, Enterotoxemia and others are not yet provided, ensure that they are given immediately. • This is the appropriate time to give parasitic and insecticide/solution. • Alternatively, use parasitic medicines.
• It is suggested that the Mineral mixture be given to livestock. • The availability of green grass increases this month but the quantity of its feed should be in check. Mix both the dry and the green fodder in the feed. Giving a large quantity of green fodder could lead to diarrhoea or acidosis. • If you have not yet performed sheep wool shearing in the past month, it needs to be finished this month. • 21 days after shearing from the sheep's body, bathe with the germicidal solution to prevent internal parasites. • The winter season commences this month, so follow appropriate management to safeguard the cattle from the cold.
