I have been feeding my 3 cows grapefruit tree leaves and they LOVE the magnolia tree leaves. I just want to make sure it will not hurt them! Does anyone know?

In a pasture environmemt ( with trees), cows eat leaves all the time.

More often for sheep and goats, but trimmed branches are given to them so they can eat the leaves.

I'm not sure about your specific specie of tree, but eating leaves is what they do.
