Sowing Wild Oats

I remember seeing this grass around years ago, and I'd forgotten its name, so I picked some and took it to the friendly guy in the office at the Lyndoch Lavender Farm, and he say it is called 'wild oats'.   There is a lot of it growing around the Lavender Farm, and along the roads.

It was explained to me, that when it is green and with the seed inside, it provides good fodder for sheep and cattle, but in reality it is an unwanted weed and causes problems within the cereal crops around Australia.
