I don't think wild onion or garlic could make anyone sick- it would just give the milk an icky taste.
Here is some info on snakeroot. A cow will only eat it when starving, so I wouldn't worry. I would look up a list of plants that are toxic to livestock in your state. I regularly walk my pastures to check for morning glory- it can kill cows.

If I remember correctly, Abraham Lincoln's mother died after drinking milk from a cow that had eaten snakeroot.

"...a cow grazing on solar powered grass and producing milk and a yearly calf exceeds the efficiency of any system humans have devised. This was obvious beyond any need to explain or defend it until people moved off the land." Joann S. Grohman
