The toxicity of yellow-wood (Terminalia oblongata) to cattle

Legg, J., Moule, G.R. and Chester, R.D. (1945) The toxicity of yellow-wood (Terminalia oblongata) to cattle. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 2 (4). pp. 199-208.



Feeding tests were carried out with yellow-wood, which was suspected of poisoning cattle in central Queensland, producing a sub-acute disease characterized by emaciation, photophobia and frequent urination. All animals fed on yellow-wood leaves exhibited symptoms differing only slightly from those observed in natural cases, and yellow-wood is therefore regarded as the cause of the trouble. The main lesion is parenchymatous nephritis.
