ABSTRACT
The article focuses on numerous instances of oak intoxication throughout Missouri during October 1993. It details the reason why the ingestion of acorns or oak buds by cattle is often fatal, likely from gallotannin. The effects of oak intoxication are likely to be permanent after renal damage occurs. Animals can be supplemented ration containing 10 to 15 percent of calcium hydroxide when access cannot be controlled.
