Saponins from Nartheciumossifragum and / or toxins from cyanobacteria have been found to be hepatotoxic and can cause photosensitization in mammals. In our preliminary study we have looked at whether it is possible to develop a bolus with toxinbinding substances which can be used in the Critical grazing period. We have developed and tested the shape, size and weight of a possible bolus, and conducted a precipitation reaction in a simulated sheep stomach.
