  • Beware of Cyanide (Prussic Acid) poisoning in ruminants

    With the start of fall comes the risk of cyanide poisoing in ruminants. Cyanide, prussic acid, hydrogen cyanide or hydrocyanic acid poisoning are all terms describing the same condition. A number of common plants, including sudangrass, johnsongrass, sorghums and sorghum-sudangrass hybrids contain cyanogenic glycosides in the outer cells of the plant.  Further inside the leaf tissue are the enzymes needed to convert these compounds to the cyanide poison.
