Plants on the farm and around the home- are they dangerous to your horses?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the last issue, I discussed some of the common and newly emerging toxic weeds that horse owners across Australia may find in their paddocks. That article provided an overview to poisonous pasture plants and discussed the basics of pasture management.However, there are literally hundreds of potential plants in Australia that might cause toxicity to horses and other livestock,when ingested in large enough quantities.Removing these toxic plants from equine pastures and paddocks can be a daunting task, but is one that must be considered,particularly with the weed pressures we will face this year, after intense rainfalls and flooding across Australia. Your state department of primary industry or catchment organization also will have information on pasture management and weed identification,most of which is now available on-line.
