If you drive out U.S. 80 West, many fields have turned bright yellow
with prairie buttercups. While visually striking, farmers don't want them,
because they are a weed that can irritate the stomachs of livestock.
However, the buttercups aren't very tasty so livestock tend not to eat them,
picking between the blossoms for the grass beneath.
Apparently, this is a very good year for the buttercups!
