The process is based on animal behavior principles and takes just 8 hours spread over 7 days. Trained animals teach their offspring and herd mates and go on to try other weeds in pasture. They remember for years, so do it once and you’re done. (Have you ever heard that from an herbicide sales person?)
For all the background, a list of which weeds are safe to train and which are not, as well as a quick start “recipe” download the Cows Eat Weeds ebook set.
Cows Eat Weeds includes all the background you need, along with problems and solutions to them from my ten years of actively working in the field training livestock across the U.S. and Canada to eat a wide variety of weeds. Edible Weeds & Training Recipe is a supplement that makes sure your animals will be safe as you begin.
