Ergovaline and Ergot Alkaloid Concentrations Change in Conserved Tall Fescue
C. A. Roberts, R. L. Kallenbach, G. E. Rottinghaus, and N. S. Hill
Ergot alkaloids are toxins in tall fescue that cause severe reductions in animal gain, reproduction, and milk production. This study was conducted over a 2-year period to determine the change in concentrations of ergovaline and total ergot alkaloids in tall fescue as it is conserved as silage, hay, and ammoniated hay.
