Fly baits only work when there is not a competing source of attraction. Fly baits themselves do not have any magical attraction ability, and in my experience, especially in a farm environment, are usually worthless.
The best overall plan would be to use outdoor Fly traps such as the Fly Be Gone Fly traps, and place them strategically outside near doors and entrances. These fly traps work great, especially because they give off a strong aroma.
Indoors, use the zappers, but make sure that the bulbs are replaced at least 1 time a year, and that the are cleaned and maintained regularly. Most of all, make sure that it contains a decent grade bulb and that it can be seen. You may need to use several fly traps, such as the Executor to get the job done.
Maxforce fly Spot bait can be sprayed on doors, resting areas etc, and kills the fly when they land on it.
We also sell a GIANT fly trap that can be hung from the ceiling in the barn. It is about 15 feet long and 2 feet wide. It will trap thousands of flies. I don't see it on our site, but will get information on it if you let me know.
Indoor fogging with Riptide, Vector Ban Plus with a quality fogger such as the Hurricane fogger on a daily basis will also cut down on the flies, although you will have to get the goats out of the barn during fogging.
Hope this helps.
