      Hi Jamie, My experience is that livestock have no problems with Galium verum, and that it is in reality a great plant for domestics and wildlive as well. The plant creeps and stays in shady zones. There are lots of people who pretty much say that every plant is invasive. I personally am not one of them. Richo
