Does watermeal affect cattle? I have a small spring fed pond that is covered with it & I'm about to put cattle on my farm.

Williamson County Tennessee

Watermeal is not a toxic plant. It can cause a fish kill by depleting oxygen when it dies and decays after late fall and winter cold weather.

Some of the best information on pond weeds can be found on the Texas Aquaplant website.
