Pokeweed control

Asked September 9, 2019, 3:01 PM EDT

Poke weed (Phytolacca Americana) is out of control in my pasture. 1. How do I kill it? 2. Is it harmful to my livestock? 3. Symptoms to be aware of in livestock if eaten? 4. How can I dispose of plants? Burning any issues? Send to landfill? 5. If the plant is cut down will roundup be effective if poured on stem to kill taproot?
