Pine Treats

A few days ago we noticed our cows straining their necks to try to reach the leaves of a spruce tree, just coming up short. So we walked over with pruning saws and dropped a few limbs for them. They gobbled it up. Hmm, that’s interesting. So we consulted our handy book “The Complete Herbal Handbook for Farm and Stable” and read the following about pine: “Treatment for all pectoral ailments, especially cough, asthma, and tuburculosis. All urinary complaints. Worms.” It’s been wet and muddy here. A perfect tonic for spring colds.
