Something is biting the yarrow stems halfway up and leaving the flower dangling behind. Any ideas

Might be a borer. If you look in the cut ends, do you see a little hole and maybe a worm in one side? Borers don't actually cut the stem, but make a hole in it which weakens it and it can then break in the wind.

Might also be a super annoying rabbit or similar who keeps changing his mind about whether he wants to eat it.
