Tall larkspur reduces pasture use and can cause death in cattle. In the West, overingestion of tall larkspur causes average death losses of 4-5%, but can exceed 15% on some ranches. In addition, the presence of tall larkspur in some pastures may force ranchers to avoid those pastures during peak forage growth in late spring and early summer.
