Kleingrass is poison to horses. Stop planting this stuff.

Post by wbwiles » Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:00 am

I've had a few friends just tell me about the death :shock: of their horses ( Weatherford Texas ) because the hay was contaminated with Kliengrass. It spreads into adjacent fields and ruins the hay for equine forage. Please stop planting this foreign African species.

Great business opportunity.
Grow your own hay then.
Klein grass has been cultivated and improved for over a half century for cattle forage.

We have had horses and we have Klein also. It never killed them. I thought I read it was just hard on organs, mainly the liver. It wasnt an instant death from eating a bale or two.

May I suggest you look for a new hay supplier. Contact me with a pm and I will get you names and numbers for several good hay producers in Van Zandt County. We areabout 60 miles east of Dallas.

Sounds like a good reason to plant it to me.

Ya, plant it around your boundaries and maybe it will keep the horse farmers away. They tend to be pretty eccentric and think every one should change their ways just to accommodate them. :)
