Abstract

SUMMARY Deaths in cattle fed sudax hay were attributed to nitrate poisoning. Seventy‐three animals out of 157 cattle died after being fed the hay, and 11 of the surviving cows aborted in the next 6 days. Toxicological findings supported this diagnosis with samples of the sudax hay containing up to 3.1% nitrate on a dry matter basis.
