Have any of you experience any side affects of blister beetles on deer? I have a opportunity to purchase alfalfa hay but it is thought to have blister beetles in it. I'm concerned it will have the same side effects that it has on horses. Thoughts?

I don’t see how a deer would consume enough with normal rain fall to hurt them, but that’s more of a biologist/vet question.

Horse will eat a who bale if given opportunity... deer not so much
