Tractor Supply sells a bug repellent for goats. It comes as a concentrate that you mix with water, or one you use straight. I will look at the name on the
bottle tomorrow morning when I go out and milk and try to remember to post it here!
I spray it on their backs, bellies and legs then carefully wipe it on their faces and ears. It does help, but since I live in the woods and
we have had lots of rain this year, it will be put to the test! I do not know if you can use a repellent that is used for cattle or horses. Maybe someone
else will know.
Citronella oil works great and smells awesome, or fly spray. I have even used OFF bug spray, the deep woods scent smells really good, lol. Just don't put it on sensitve areas, I don't know if it will irritate those areas
