Watch cows graze weeds on YouTube

Livestock consultant Kathy Voth has earned attention for several years for her research on teaching cows to eat weeds.

Livestock consultant Kathy Voth has earned attention for several years for her research on teaching cows to eat weeds. Now, the innovative range consultant is spreading her message through YouTube.

Voth has posted several videos on the YouTube site so others can watch and learn how to train their cows to eat weeds. Voth says there’s even a “music” video showing work she did this summer in Montana teaching cows to eat Canada thistle.

She also includes a review of all the weeds she has trained cows to eat since developing the process in 2004. There are also three interview videos with producers describing how the training process worked for them.

View the videos at Voth’s YouTube channel. For more about Voth’s work visit her website.
