    Could be common ragwort? But definitely a weed   :)

    I'd agree it's a weed, l was thinking maybe Groundsel, but that's a guess.

    I think it's ragwort, poisonous.

    Ragwort. Senecio jacobea. Causes liver damage to horses.

    Yes ... ragwort ... great for insects (it's the foodplant for the larvae of Cinnabar and Burnet Moths) but not suitable for most gardens and definitely not on land used for hay or by grazing animals.
