Bloat in Sheep and Cattle

Bloat is a risk when animals are grazing young, lush pasture, particularly if the pasture has high legume content (clover, medics or Lucerne). Ruminant animals produce large volumes of gas during the normal process of digestion. This gas either is belched up or passes through the gastrointestinal tract. If something interferes with gas escape from the rumen, bloat occurs.
