As I wait for the county agent to get back with me, I wanted to see what knowledge is here.
Yes I know it's poisonous when consumed green in large enough quantities. I have a strip of this weed growing in my seeding. It appears to be a spreader width for a quarter mile of the field. I'm guessing it was a load that did not get composted long enough or the outside scrape up. Regardless, in my youth, I remember seeing it in seeding, and we would cut, dry, bale as normal. I don't remember any ill effects to livestock. So my question: Does drying Pigweed in hay reduce it's toxicity?

Yes bale it and feed it. We have had most every weed around in hay at one time or another with no problems. Even milkweed.

I was hoping someone here had real world experience with it in DRY hay. I know how to kill it. At this point it's too late for me to spray it. Again, I know how to kill it, but it's too late for that in this case.
Can it be baled dry w/o toxicity concerns?[b:ca961ec08f][/b:ca961ec08f]

Grazon is great for that and won't harm your grass.

Yes, I've found plenty online of how to control it. That is not my concern right now. It will not be an issue next year.
