Phalaris Staggers one downside to late spring rainfall

The widespread rainfall that the eastern states have recently received has led to a higher level of toxicity in Phalaris, and subsequent incidences of Phalaris Staggers. According to a report in the Land newspaper ‘one farmer has lost 30% of his young ewes to phalaris poisoning’ with a total of half a dozen cases being reported over the last couple of months. While the scale of the issue is not huge the effects can be devastating and worth keeping an eye out for.
