Prussic acid poisoning in livestock

Prussic acid poisoning in livestock

Local Land Services

What is prussic acid poisoning?

Prussic acid is not normally present in plants but under certain conditions, several common plants can accumulate large quantities of cyanogenic

glycosides which can convert to prussic acid. The risk of prussic acid poisoning in livestock is increased during periods of drought, and even

more so after drought breaks, when stressed, stunted plants begin to grow.
