Cow question for the board (Yellowstone)
In the episode me n the Mrs watched last night someone dropped some bales over a herd of cows and poisoned them last night killing the herd. Never quite heard the explanation as I was sidetracked grilling some yardbird

Anyone care to explain the deal here. Inquiring minds want ( need) to know and I figured you baws would have a better explanation than the TV board.
TIA

If I remember correctly the bails had clover, and apparently cows don't digest clover well of something like that.

If this is true wouldn’t it be an issue with deer as well , since they are ungulates as well?

no, ungulate is correct

both cattle and deer are even-toed ungulates (order Artiodactyla)

Cockleburs can be poisonous to cattle during certain stages in their life cycle.

Cows typically eat until they are full. Clover does not cause them to feel "full", regardless of how much they eat. Basically, they eat themselves to death.

The clover causes them to bloat and they cannot expel the gas. They essentially suffocate from pressure the rumen exerts on the diagram.

Article on alfalfa and bloat

quote:

While a very nutritious forage, with high energy and protein values, grazing of fresh alfalfa comes with its risks. Typically, if a pasture is less than 50% alfalfa, there is a reduced occurrence of bloat. Care must always be taken when grazing alfalfa, even “non-bloating alfalfa”. “Non-bloating” or “bloat-safe” alfalfa have lower amounts of soluble proteins, the cause of bloat in ruminants. However, animals should still be monitored, because even though it is considered “safe”, bloat can still occur.


quote:

Why does alfalfa cause bloat in the first place? Soluble proteins in forages and other small particles within the cells of the plant are rapidly released once they reach the rumen. These proteins and particles are attacked by slime producing rumen microbes, which cause a buildup of stable foam. The foam decreases the animal’s ability to expel rumen gases that are created from fermentation of plant material. These gases begin to accumulate, causing pressure on the diaphragm, leading to bloat. In severe cases, the rumen can become distended, and death may occur.

Bloating can happen as fast as 15 minutes.

My grandfather had one of these that they would stick in the cow right behind the last rib I believe.

I’ve never seen that but the symptoms of bloat show up pretty quick.
