    Hi, Firstly has anybody got a second hand Mobile sheep dip for sale or know anybody that has. Also how long does osmonds gold fleece protect against blowfly as on my sheep dipping course they said it lasts for 12 weeks, whereas I’ve heard it’s only 6 elsewhere?

    Optimistically 8 weeks ime. Given a 49 day withdrawal period on the product, you need to get your fat lamb sales lined up ready if you are relying on OP dip to protect fat lambs from fly strike.....

    Unfortunate, as it is/was a good method of blowfly control.:(

    Still the best thing about for treatment does lambs the world of good! The 49 day withdrawal is quit appealing to farmers i find.

  7. How come? I fail to see how anything that restricts when you can sell your product can be appealing?
    I agree in terms of quality of doing its job dipping is 2nd to none

    49 day withdrawal is the main drawback imo.. at least with clikzin it’s only a 7day meat withdrawal!

    It’s certainly more appealing than the much longer withdrawal it had for some time. Was it 70 days?:scratchhead:

    I understand what you are saying however it only affects a small proportion for time restraints, as as if you are holding on to your lambs that bit longer or like myself who sell stores it does not affect it

    Suspect it will need a bit of work not used in last few years since he bought a jetter

    You do know that the vmd have told all wholesalers that they are not allowed to sell dip to anyone with either a jetter or a shower from now on as it isnt licenced for the use in anthing but a plung dip!
