The fungus Rhizictonia leguminicola growing in red clover produces a compound that, when consumed by cattle, results in profuse salivation (hence the name “slobber syndrome”), which is relatively common throughout the Midwest. The compound itself is not to toxic before being consumed but is transformed by the animal into a toxin compound.
