Purple Berries



I'm not sure what these are, but the cows won't touch them, and they fall over the fence into my yard every year.  Does anyone recognize them?

The bush is called BeautyBerry:

Maybe because it deters bugs and stuff, the cows know better than to eat it.

Thanks so much for the info, Theo -- I've been worried they were poisonous to animals, so we've been cutting them back for years.
