Do Cattle Eat Wild Oats (Dry)

Hi Guys,


I run some Angus steers / heifers up near Wangartta, VIC. The feed is running quite low and dry however there are lots of wild oats (dried).

Is this something the cattle munch on?

Hi Lamchops,

Welcome to the small farming forum. 

Cattle are very happy eating wild oats or black oats as they are also know. Once they run to head and set seed they are still palatable however tend not to hold much value as the undigestable material increases in the plant.
