Pasture Program to Focus on Toxic Plants

Pasture Program to Focus on Toxic Plants

 

North Florida pastures and grazing lands harbor a wide range of plants that can be toxic to grazing animals. Toxic effects can range from nearly instant death to long term organ damage resulting in chronic underperformance. There is wide variation in which parts of which plants are toxic to which species of livestock and when. Additionally, there are several factors which affect how likely animals are to consume toxic plants. If you’d like to know more about the identification and management of toxic plants, join us at 7pm on Tuesday, November 18 at the Jefferson County Extension Office, 2729 West Washington. The event is free to the public, but please register so we can have adequate materials and seating. Contact Jed Dillard at 850-342-0187 or dillardjed@ufl.edu.
