Nitrate Toxicity

Toxic levels of nitrate in livestock feed can cause reduced production and poison unborn and mature animals, causing abortion or death. Normally, feed does not contain enough nitrate to make it toxic. However, when conditions interfere with the growing cycle, like drought, hail, and frost, nitrate can accumulate in plants. Even then, forage from these plants can sometimes safely be fed to livestock, if proper precautions are taken.
