Typically winter broadleaf weeds are not sprayed. There are multiple reasons. Number one reason is that most winter weeds are readily consumed by livestock. Another reason is the herbicides used will damage desirable type forages like legumes. last reason, depending on the weather, most herbicides are made to work when day and night time temperatures are much warmer than it currently is now.
