Ergot in Pastures
Ergot affects wild and cultivated grasses, and small grain crops such as wheat, oats, barley and especially rye.
University of Wisconsin has received a report of Ergot in pastures, which is not unexpected with the cool, wet spring we had.
Ergot can be toxic to cattle, sheep, and horses.
