Pasture toxicity in beef & dairy cattle

Sewing pastures to fill the winter feed gap is essential in dairy, and best practice in beef cattle. Yet when certain environmental conditions align, commonly sewn pastures can cause toxicity in cattle.

Listen in to hear from North Coast Local Land Services District Vet, and Tweed dairy farmer Cory Crosthwaite on their experiences of plant toxicity in cattle.

For more information and advice, call your nearest Local Land Services office on 1300 795 299.

You can obtain key information about caring for beef and dairy cattle in the North Coast Local Land Services publication, Beef Cattle Health and Husbandry for the NSW North Coast. This publication is currently undergoing review and the new version, including an expanded section on pasture toxicity, will be available soon. We will update this link as soon as possible.
