Rasmussen, L.A. Stoddart, and Raymond J. Becraft, past members of the faculty in the College of Natural Resources, Utah State University, Logan, Utah. The PNW abounds with a huge variety of native and imported plants. Unfortunately, some of these plants are toxic to livestock. Signs of toxicity can range from as mild as brief indigestion to as severe as sudden death. It behooves all livestock producers to become familiar .

    The best way to reduce sheep losses to sneezeweed/ bitterweeds is to avoid herding sheep in areas heavily infested with the plant so that the sheep do not overgraze an area to the extent that they are forced to eat the weed. 1) Never turn hungry sheep onto halogeton 2) Introduce sheep gradually to allow rumen microbes to adjust (Graze shadscale firs (low oxalates) to allow microbes to build up) 3) Don't overgraze (maintain range in good condition to prevent halogeton invasion) 4) Re-seed infested sites (Halogeton can't compete with vigorous perennial grasses and shrubs).

The amount of land they graze on depends on the quality of the forages. One shepherd can usually handle 1, to 1, sheep. Range lambs are smaller than purebred or farm flock animals and are raised for meat production. Helenium hoopesii is a PERENNIAL growing to m (3ft) by m (1ft 8in) at a medium rate.

It is hardy to zone (UK) 3. It is in flower from June to September, and the seeds ripen from August to October. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Bees, Lepidoptera (Moths & Butterflies).

It is noted for attracting wildlife. As animals graze the area, they select the more desirable plants, which increases the infestation of the orange sneezeweed. Defense: Grazing management.Unlike sheep and cattle goats do not develop strong immunity to gut worms.

Under normal grazing conditions goats have been shown to be more severely infected than sheep, with much higher burdens and more damage to the gut, and this is due to their inferior ability to elicit an immune response (Torres-Acosta and Hoste, ).
