strawberry plants and cattle
Does anyone know anything about feeding strawberry plants to cattle?
A local a strawberry plant producer wants to know if he can use
strawberry plant culls as cattle feed. He grows the plants as root
stock, but the sorting process results in considerable
quantities of culls. He would like to know if there are any reasons
why these plants can't be fed to livestock. Are there any bioactive
compounds in stawberry plants that might be detrimental to cattle?
As usual, any and all help is greatly appreciated.
