I think Missouri has the same requirements as Kentucky. You can either bury them 6 feet or burn them.

Sorry for your loss. I don't figure it was because of the Johnson Grass. Yeah burning them I'm sure takes a good hot fire for a good while. Hard to bury a cow if you don't have the equipment and everyone with the equipment is booked up.

I bought some cyantesmo paper from amazon. Not cheap but sure makes me feel better.
It will tell you if prussic acid present. I tested it on wilted cherry leaves. The strips turned bright blue almost immediately
