Special Considerations & Passerel Plus Early Test Results

You may need to provide high magnesium minerals to livestock -- cattle, sheep --  during the growing or early grazing winter season to reduce the possibility of grass tetany or commonly called grass staggers. Note this is not an exclusive problem to ryegrass but can be caused by other pasture crops as well. This usually occurs when placing cattle or sheep on rapidly growing young pasture grass, wheat grass or small grains such as oats; as well as moving livestock from low nutrient or frosted winter pasture onto lush new pasture.
