Excerpt from Arrow-Grass: A New Stock-Poisoning Plant (Triglochin Maritima)

But little is known concerning the extent of animal losses caused by arrow-grass. It has not been generally considered poisonous, and many losses attributed to other causes may have been' due to this plant. Dried arrow-grass mixed with hay or fed free from mixture is readily eaten. The green plant does not seem to be distasteful to animals. And it is sometimes eaten greedily, although many other poisonous plants, especially those containing alkaloids, are so bitter that stock will eat them only when forced to do so by extreme hunger.

Because of its rather pleasing and acceptable taste and because of the fact that the plant often grows in almost pure patches from a few feet to rods across and produces a large quantity of forage, it would seem easier for animals either on pasture or on hay to get a fatal dose of arrow-grass than of poisonous plants which grow scattered here and there amid other foliage.
