Cattle - Poisonous Plants

Plant poisonings occur relatively commonly in our area

Peak times that plant poisonings occur are during or just following drought when available pasture becomes scarce and animals are forced to eat whatever vegetation is available.

In order to prevent poisonings supplementary feeding should be undertaken during these times of limited pasture availablity, and animals should be restricted from grazing areas with known poisonous plants.

It is important to note that not all poisonings will result in acute animal sickness and some may cause damage to internal organs which will affect the animals in months or years to come.
