Experimental treatment of fescue toxicosis in beef cattle



Experimental treatment of fescue toxicosis in beef cattle



Mississippi Veterinary Journal (Fall): 13-14



Two groups, each of 14 heifers, were grazed for 120 days on two Festuca arundinacea pastures, one of which was infected with the fungus Acremonium coenophialum. Mean serum prolactin value in the group grazing fungus-infected fescue was only 53.8 ng/ml, against 113.9 in the control group.
