Plants Poisonous to Livestock List

It is unusual for goats to become poisoned by eating hazardous plants, because goats are browsers; they eat a bite of this and then a bite of that. If something bothers them, they normally just don’t go back to it. However, if a goat is hungry, or inexperienced, it can poison itself by being a glutton.
