If you plan to make balage, silage or hay on pasture that has seed head in it, (eg pasture that you would have cut in January but it was too dry) please walk through it and check for ergot infection on the seed heads. If in doubt about what you are looking for or what to do with an infected paddock, please get in touch. Please spread this information round, ergot toxicity affects all classes of stock, is extrememly serious and is not treatable.
