Still lookimg for away to rid the pasture of onion grass...Ellie has been in the corral for 3 days eating hay and her milk is great as of today..Someone suggested 2,4-D but it sounds pretty toxic for us to use...Seems like there is no getting rid of this mess...KAtG

We would bring the cows up about two hours or so befor milking and feed them dry hay. cows were kept close to barn at night and did not have a tste problem with morning milk.Pasture management, clipping, fertilizing, and pasture rotation will help some. I am not sure if we have the same thing we call it wild onions around here. Do not do much spraying so can't help you on that part.

Wild onion has no bulblets at it's roots and the leaves or stems are not hollow. Wild garlic has tiny bulblets at the root base and the leaves are hollow. Pulling either of these out only increases their production, they must be dug out or sprayed with repeated applications of glyphosphate until they are gone. Never allow them to flower or seed will be set and you will have a real problem.
