Drove thru the quail lease this weekend. Covered in broomweed. Looks like great cover. Anyone know of nutritional value if any? Didn’t see as much ragweed as I was hoping for.

Other thoughts on broomweed?

Ragweed is better but broomweed works. I've seen crops packed with the seed. The seed looks a lot like cornmeal.

Throckmorten was thick as all get out with broom weed. That place was really green and wet, two weeks ago.

I thought broom weed was a noxious plant. Maybe just cattle?

This covey was under a bush in a solid broom weed field.

I don't know about for birds...but broomweed is toxic to most livestock...goat weed also called dove weed, that's what I look for...

When the broomweed is fully browned out, quail can start eating the seed (mid-Dec in rolling plains). They love it for loafing cover, overhead protection from avian predators

On point
No pun intended

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
