Thanks to Mike Ga I found out I did not have wild onion grass it is wild garlic...the bad news is there is still no way to safely kill it in our pastures...Weed B Gone folks said not to use their product where milks cows graze...
Matt has mixed up vinegar...salt and dish soap and is out shooting that darn mess....something has got to kill it...Wonder if it ever turns cold if the temp will do it in...Thanks for all ya'lls help...KAt

A cup of nitrogen fertilizer on a weed will usually kill it. I don't know about wild garlic, though. And, you dont' want your cow in the pasture when you do the nitrogen thing. It would defintely not be good for her to eat the nitrogen. Have you tried contacting your county extension agent for ideas? Sometimes they can be a great help.

i don,t belive in using poisons around here on anything, we plough and roll over the pasture and let the frost kill weeds and everything during the winter then in the spring we disc and seed , thats one way to deal with weeds , not sure if it gets cold enough where your at though, another way is to mow before they go to seed, this takes a number of years, not sure it will get it all but it helps , i don,t know anything about this grass you have so i can,t help much,cows like taller grasses that they can wrap their tounges around when the graze so if you could mow this stuff they wouldn,t get as much or maybe they wouldn, t bother with it at all.

Well at least you will not have to worry about any Vampires getting your cattle in the pasture.

One way to tell if it is wild onion or garlic is to taste it...So matt went and dug up a clump and I tried it out...Not fact rather tasty...Wild garlic taste like an onion...Strange huh...

I don't think freezing will kill it, best dig it out and move it to the garden.
