Animal Safety During Lambing & Calving Season

What is oftentimes an exhausting, albeit highly rewarding, part of farm life, lambing and calving season is in full swing at ranches and farms across the U.S. During this season, keeping watch over birthing and newly born animals is of the highest priority.

Nite Guard Solar important in COYOTE country

By Katie Berning
Now is a great time to have Nite Guard Solar lights in COYOTE country. Why? As fall approaches, immature coyotes begin dispersing from their den and venturing out to establish home ranges of their own. These young coyotes, as well as adult coyote, may wander into close contact with humans and livestock in search for food. The coyote is a opportunist and will eat just about anything. Data shows that coyote predation on livestock and pets increases in the winter because their primary food source (rodents and other small animals) go into hibernation, which in turn forces them to find other food sources... read more >

Protecting Your Horses Against Coyote and Other Night Animal Attacks

The damage and injury from night animals to horses, especially foals, can be a serious problem. The trauma inflicted on these animals we love so much is extremely hard to witness, and the cost can be immeasurable. Physiological and behavioral stress, as well as bodily injury often occurs.

All Night Predators Share the Same Deep Rooted Fear

By Jim Meyer
Owls, coyote, raccoon, bobcat, wolf, bear and deer; virtually all night animals share one single thing in common: The fear of being watched. To night animals this sense of being observed by another animal or man creates a huge threat and they will flee an area where they sense this is being done. An animal that hunts or feeds at night will not remain in an area where it feels it has been discovered. Years ago scientific studies were conducted in Austria in an attempt to find a solution to the many deer/car accidents that occur each year. Although a reliable system was not realized at that time, I found... read more >

Losing Sleep Because Coyote are Killing Your Goats?

By Jim Meyer
Your eyes snap open, you look at the clock, its 3 a.m. and the sound of the howling pierces the night. There is no doubt what this is – a pack of coyotes has moved in close and are probably headed for the stock you moved into the north pasture last week. Your mind races: the snares and traps you’ve set better do their job or you will be out several head of prized goats. The stock is probably up and nervous. Should I head out with the gun? How many times have you experienced this or something similar in the past? Night predators are not evil creatures. They are merely living their lives the best they can, like the rest of us. But to a goat raiser - coyote, wolf, bobcat and bear are anything but welcome when you have time and money invested. read more >

Protect Your Livestock from Coyote using the SUN

By Jim Meyer
Predators can be devastating to livestock producers – most of us know that. Especially at risk is the open grazing methods of raising animals or poultry. Coyotes head the top of the list of livestock killers when it involves goats, sheep and calves on grazing land, although fox, wolves and bear get their licks in too. Poultry and waterfowl fall victims to raccoon, possums and owls and controlling federally protected raptors such as owls and hawks is nearly impossible from a legal standpoint. read more >
