Elgin Rancher Loses 15 Head of Cattle
Cyanide produced from hybrid grass blamed
Jerry Abel reported this week that he lost 15 of 18 head of cattle recently, after letting them out to pasture in a field that supported a hybrid grass that is popular among Central Texas cattlemen. Tifton 85 was planted by Abel more than 15 years ago and that is the forage he prefers for the Corriente cattle he has on his land and that his trainer uses while training cutting horses.
