I can’t find any definitive sources. Some websites say it is toxic to livestock but there are not many sources and I didn’t find any specific to goats.
Does anyone have a reliable answer? Or personal experience?
I appreciate any responses.

Oh you mean this stuff?


We have that at the edge of two of our pastures. The goats don't really touch it unless there's nothing else. I have seen them occasionally nibble it. No idea if it's supposed to be poisonous, but I've had goats on it for a year and never had a problem.

Something I want to add is that sometimes a plant can be listed as questionably poisonous and yet can be found in pastures where goats are and never be a problem as long as it is not their main source of food. I would be concerned if it was basically the only thing they have available, but when my pastures get eaten down, I am sure to supply adequate hay so that they are not eating plants they shouldn't be eating as their main diet. Just something to keep in mind.
