The Palliser Cattle Oiler is the most effective way to treat your livestock for flies, lice & mosquitoes year round. The large diameter ropes are long lasting and the Palliser Cattle Oiler features low maintenance design (no wicks – no pumps) delivering years of trouble free service.
The cattle love to rub on the ropes. Insecticide is delivered by gravity onto the outside of the rope as the animal rubs, ensuring instant application. The Mineral/Salt feeder ensures animals will use the oiler beneficially. The Palliser Cattle Oiler will pay for itself in the 1st year of use. A must for the progressive cattleman!

Half Conversion of Blue Pump & Wick Oiler to the Palliser Cattle Oiler
The half conversion of the blue pump and wick oiler provides the advantages to the cattleman of the rope delivering the oil that is pumped by the pump onto the outside of the rope as the cattle rub instead of the oil being pumped inside the wick. The reason the rope is a superior method of delivering the oil is that the cattle rub on the outside of the oiler and not the inside and the spiral design of the rope delivers the oil to where the cattle are rubbing. In contrast the wick must have the oil pumped into it and then the oil must make its way out through the cover, however most of the oil flows right through the wick and out on to the ground.
The half conversion allows the producer to remove the wick and install the rope conversion kit and continue to use the pump on the blue oiler. The half conversion kit means that the blue pump and wick oiler has been half converted over to a rope oiler with valves. If the producer wishes to carry on with the full conversion, almost all of the parts used on the half conversion can become part of the full conversion.
Full Conversion of Blue Pump & Wick Oiler to The Palliser Cattle Oiler
The full conversion allows the cattleman to convert the blue pump and wick oiler to the rope cattle oiler and still use the stand of the blue oiler. In many cases the stands are straight and in good order.
This conversion is done by removing the square beam which holds the pump on the top of the tank. The square beam is replaced by a bolt-on bracket which holds the tank and valves of the rope oiler. Once the bracket is in place, the tank and valves are installed on this bracket. Since the rope is longer than the wick that has been removed, an extension pipe is added to the long pipe on the blue oiler to accommodate the longer rope and then the longer rope is installed from the bracket down to the extended pipe. The oiler then functions as a rope oiler on a blue oiler stand.

Les Herman, Medicine Hat, AB
In the spring of 2003 I purchased 3 Palliser Cattle Oilers with drapes and traded 3 pump and wick oilers on them. I am very happy with this decision. The Palliser Oiler is a better mechanism for applying the chemical. The Palliser Oiler delivers more chemical onto the animals than the pump and wick oiler did because I could see and smell chemical on the backs of the animals using the Palliser Oiler but I couldn’t say this about the pump and wick oiler.
One time I let a Palliser Oiler run dry and the bull and cows were standing there ready to use it. When I filled it the bull went right under and began rubbing back and forth to treat himself.
If I need more oilers I will definitely purchase more Palliser Oilers.
Murray Dagenais, Blaine Lake, SK
In the spring of 2002 I purchased one Palliser Cattle Oiler complete with Feeder and Drape and one pump and wick oiler complete with Feeder and Drape from the Palliser rep. He told me he would take back which ever one I didn’t like. In the spring of 2003 I asked him to take back the pump and wick oiler and deliver me two more Palliser Cattle Oilers compete with Feeders and Drapes.
The reason I asked him to take back the pump and wick oiler was because I could see and smell the chemical on the animals’ backs that had access to the rope cattle oiler (Palliser) but I could not see and smell chemical on the backs of the animals that had access to the pump and wick oiler. I also prefer the method by which the rope cattle oiler applies the chemical.
The rope cattle oiler (Palliser) applies the chemical onto the outside of the rope as the cattle rub and the chemical spirals its way down the rope. In contrast, the pump and wick oiler applies the oil inside the wick and the oil must make its way outward through the cover and I feel not enough makes its way out but instead goes on the ground.
The cattle use the rope and drape continuously and are very content during fly season. The mineral feeder draws the animals up to the oiler.
Bryan Harbers, Monarch, AB
Our operation has used rope oilers for about 8 years. We find the cattle show product on their backs better and seem to use the oiler more frequently than the wick oilers we have used.
Several of our wick oilers with pumps have been converted to the rope. Maintenance requirements have dropped dramatically. We have spent in the area of $300.00 per servicing on pump and wick oilers as a rule. The rope oilers have virtually no maintenance costs on a regular basis.
Mike Wurz, Butte Colony, Bracken SK
As the cattle boss of the Butte Colony, Bracken, SK, I have used rope oilers , pump & wick oilers, and I much prefer the rope oiler. The cows use the oiler more, have less flies on the cattle, and the rope oilers are maintenance free. Very satisfied with them.
