Sue Kennedy Teaches Cows to Eat Leafy Spurge

Here are some of the posts on the Kennedy Ranch Facebook page from Sue Kennedy’s work teaching cattle to eat leafy spurge on their ranch in Lamoille, Nevada.


Sue says that the cattle do well eating the spurge on their first rotation through a pasture. But 14 days later they tend to eat around the spurge. She and I will be chatting in the near future about this tendency. I’d like to know a little more about what the regrowth looks like after 14 days and variety in pasture as well. So we’ll share more when we know more! 🙂

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
