    Sorry off topic! But this is what I’m doing with my 500 shepherded ewes, they have been way until today (on rough grass then our own seeds) where they have gone onto good covers that I have split into 2ha paddocks.

    It defiantly stiffened up when someone offered me a load of rape to graze, then he said his 18 year old daughter would help me do them fencing. 😂
