  • OK

  • This book has valuable information. The plants named in this book will help you identify your problem areas such as it helped me. However, pictures instead of drawings may be more presentable. It is not easy to identify plants just from a drawing. Spring, Summar and Fall pictures would help in identifying the plants.Field Guide to Plants Poisonous to Livestock : Western U.S.

  • Must have booklet if you work in an agricultural community.

  • Very poor guide, drawings NOT photo of plants. No color all but worthless

  • This book put my mind at ease when it helped me identify some very poisonous plants in my pastures. Photos would be more helpful than the illustrations but the detailed information on signs of poisoning and treatments is comforting to have close at hand.
