Dropping like Flies: Veterinarians warn of prussic acid toxicity in Oklahoma forages
Several cattle have died in Oklahoma from prussic acid toxicity.
The deaths have prompted warnings from large animal veterinarians in the area. Prussic acid toxicity can occur when cattle graze pastures with toxic plants such as Johnson grass.
Veterinarians warn to thoroughly check pastures before letting a herd loose and to always check your animals if they are not acting right.
