buttercup issues

Asked May 18, 2016, 3:08 PM EDT

I have pasture at the edge of Eastern Jefferson County which has buttercups and I am afraid my horses will be poisoned. Is there any program which could help me eradicate the buttercups and plant or encourage grass. The pasture is hilly and has washed terribly with the rains and now looks over grazed and yellow with buttercups. I have 2 horses on about 7 acres but the entire area is not covered in buttercup yet. Thank you, Mikell Grafton

I've listed some links to consider for managing toxic plants.
Let me know if more information is needed.
