    Is there any relatively easy treatment for acorn toxicity?

    Yeah, they’ll eat them when there’s nothing else. Friend of mine, Stephenville, couldn’t get to the leased pasture for two-three days, sudden extreme medical emergency. He found most dead, others sick, to vet, liver failure.

    Dead newborn-predation? Birth defects?

    Dead newborn-predation? Birth defects?
