Two of our cows started to lose weight and began to look unhealthy. Eventually both of the cows died of an unknown cause. After talking to several different ranchers, I found that it was possible for the cattle to die of worms. Because the cows slowly lost weight these ranchers thought worms was a possible cause of the their deaths. To prevent this from happening again, I now give the cattle worm blocks to eat. After feeding the cows these worm blocks, one cow that had lost weight turned right around and looked very healthy after a couple of weeks. I plan to give the cattle two of these worm blocks every year, one in the spring and one in the fall.
