Ragwort concern for Cheshire farmers

'AUTHORITIES in Cheshire are being urged by farming leaders to get to grips with ragwort – a toxic plant which poses serious risks to animal health.'

Ragwort also in Nocton

I have noticed this plant growing quite happily along the verges of the Nocton Estate.  It is especially prevalent in the ridge and furrow fields either side of the Estate road alongside the cricket pitch. It is also in the other fields near Lower Lodge.

The grass is being cut in these fields presently, seemingly before any attempt has been taken to remove this toxic plant. I just hope the hay isn't being used as animal feed for some poor unsuspecting owner of livestock.
