Reports of toxic weeds

The recent rainfall has increased the number of reports of toxic weeds springing up in summer pastures and stubbles. Although many weeds are safe to graze, some of the more common summer weeds may be toxic to livestock.

Symptoms of toxicosis

Photosensitisation, jaundice, swelling of the head, jaw, and eyes, and weight loss are all visible signs of plant toxicosis. These symptoms generally stem from a dysfunctional and damaged liver that can have long-term consequences for animal health, production, and welfare.
