Fungus Prevention - Helpful Hints

Prevent Show Lamb Fungus Before It Starts

  • Stop-N-Grow  Feed all natural Stop-N-Grow fungus prevention feed additive and wool restorer. 
    This will help prevent fungus and ringworm by building immunity through the internal side of the lamb. A pellet organic  iodine and black walnut oil is easy to feed once a day as a top-dress. Lambs consume all the ingredients since it is in pellet form vs. picking through other granular additives.  (Contains black walnut oil.)  Start feeding when the lamb is 60 lbs or larger & feed “Stop-N-Grow” for at least 3-4 weeks to get ingredients in the lambs system to have an effect.


Additional Prevention Procedures At Home

  • LimePlus Dip & Ring-Out Concentrate
    Use on your animals once a week in barn with sulfur LimePlus Dip.  Rinse to help prevent or kill show lamb fungus on the external skin of the lamb.  This is the most effective product we have found to work for killing show lamb fungus.


Additional Prevention When Going To Open or Jackpot Shows

  • Ring-Out Shampoo & Ring Out Concentrate: 
    After a show or when you're ready to load your lambs to leave, wash lamb with Ring-Out Shampoo    and then immediately take lambs to your trailer and spray with Ring-Out Concentrate.  This is the most effective product we have found to work for killing show lamb fungus.


Prevention For Pens, Trailers, and Equipment
