Larkspur toxicity in cattle studied

Larkspur toxicity in cattle studied

IN the western foothills and mountain rangelands of the U.S., wild larkspurs (Delphinium spp.) are a major cause of cattle losses.

For the most part, grazing cattle can self-regulate their consumption of larkspurs and avoid toxicity problems. However, when cattle eat too much too quickly or they eat low amounts continuously, toxicity can occur. Symptoms of toxicity include muscle weakness. Cattle also can become non-ambulatory and die.
