"They believed it was caused by the cow eating some type of plant and contaminating the milk."

Wasn't it Jimsonweed?

I can't remember the specific details. The source is from a series of history books called "Foxfire". I would buy them and give them to my Dad. {After reading them first}

From my own experience, I can't say that I've ever seen cattle eat jimson weed. Simply handling the stuff leaves a smell that is hard to remove. It wouldn't seem to be very tasty. But who knows what an animal stressed with hunger might eat.
