:?: Purchaed basic h for parasite control for cows, now I see little insects in the water trough that look like flies but not houseflies and have never noticed them before. They are dead and I just keep dipping them out with net. Also does anybody know about the ground alfalfa or alfalfa cubes that TSC sells and if they are good for organic program.Also will be spraying my two small paddocks soon and will be using a 20 gallon sprayer. Is 1 gallon of molasses, 1 gallon of store bought compost tea, and 1 gallon of liquid humates too much to 17 gallons of water? This will be my first time to spray as I usually put out dry material.

Basic H will kill "bugs" in water and kill algae. No
cause for alarm. You can't mess up on your
spraying. You will be fine.
On Basic H use 1 cup/hundred gals of water. I
mix DE and dry humate with ground up Alfalfa
(packaged by Purina) for animals. This builds
immune system. I put out 1/3 kelp, 1/3 Redmond
Conditioner, 1/3 Redmond salt + some DE. (You
can use Redmond salt block and 1/3 DE if you like)

There has to be someplace in your area, but I don't
know. You might try Robert at www.rehobothranch.com
He and his family raise pastured eggs, chicken, beef,
lamb, and goat dairy. He carries a lot of things and
uses a lot of products on the ranch. The ranch is not
far from you.

Call your local feed/garden shops. They should be carrying it. If they don't, they can order it from Natural First (distributor) in various size bags.
