Can I plant this seed mat in a field with goats, sheep and chickens?

Hello there, we have contacted the manufacturer and received the following response: The varieties in all the seed mats are safe to grow anywhere and have been used in meadows previously. There shouldn't be any adverse effects to the animals but please be aware they have never been tested for toxicity in cattle. Once laid, they would need a few months to become established and to allow the seeds to germinate and start growing. If laid where animals are grazing, there is no guarantee how well the mats will grow or last. Sheep and goats especially may eat the mats so they would need to be protected from the animals. The mats do break down on their own into the ground and help protect the seeds against weeds and birds but it isn't really a suitable product to lay in an area where animals will be roaming free immediately after use. We hope this helps.
