Plants poisonous to livestock

I was looking for what plants I should remove from the garden before putting pigs into it. It is a hard thing to find information on.

I found this so far, but as much as it is from a University source, I do wonder about some of the things listed. I wonder if it is a matter of quantity for some?

Broccoli and turnips are pisonous? My livestock love them.

We'll then you should share it here.  It does no good to just mention it.  Is it not information that us mere ACE members should know?  Is it something for only the "elite" to know?  We have many members that don't have Facebook or that don't join groups like that

I would agree with you there must be some that it is amount vs animal weight to.


Farm closed down, no animals left but I still love farm life and will miss it!

It is difficult to share from my phone. Have to wait until I am in the office. And it's a weekend. No office time for me! :thumbsup:

Re: Plants poisonous to livestock

See, our cows have always kept (the best...grrr) chokecherry bushes trimmed. Now all the berries are at the top where I can see them but not reach them.

I am still not sure what I should remove for pigs. I read that it is actually minimal. So far, I removed tomatoes and some potato plants.  I will also remove flowers as there are few that are usually good as a whole. I am somewhat concerned about certain weeds that might not be good (unsure if some types are okay) and really don't want to find all that potato seed that dropped because it was lots for the Russian Blues, but will try to find it all if I can.

I have asked two online sources who till with pigs spring & fall. I will post here if they answer.

GalaBoys, posting that list here would be awesome. :thumbsup: I don't have time (nor do I want to) to do Facebook. Thanks!

Re: Plants poisonous to livestock

From Walter Jeffries of Sugar Mountain Farm who raises many pigs:
"Our pigs eat the potato and tomato plants. It is not a huge proportion of their diet so this appears to be fine."
