    Mowing before/after rotaional grazing.

    I believe you mow them before the seed head forms and thus they don't reproduce, also, hopefully in the mean time your sward will have put out more tillers so that any seeds still in the soil don't get the opportunity to germinate in future.

    Stakeholder Needed - Chicken Farming

    Just a general point as I'm not really involved in small scale chicken production - these things tend to work better (and your subsequent data analysis will be easier) if you direct people to a Microsoft forms or similar.

    Ah, "socialism" for the wealthy, you mean - where private businesses and landowners get state funding far in excess of individuals?

    Depends. Apparently mowing is quite good for getting rid of annual weeds.

    Why is that important? Captialism eats small businesses as the drive towards globalism continues. It is a system of exchange and as such is entirely without morals (as are the most successful capitalists) - it is up to peoples to enforce morals upon it (the basis of socialism).

    So.... State supported industries are NOT socialist and unfettered free market capitalism IS socialist? That's quite the doublethink..... :LOL:

    Can't catch my sheep

    You should be able to crook a limping ewe without a dog once you get the hang of it, sometimes cornering them is useful, other times its just a question of reflexes and approaching them from the right angle. It's quite difficult to explain without showing you. You'll need a leg crook/cleek.

    Mules are still supreme

    Even if I agreed with your arbitrary "scores", one of those is a crossbred, so you haven't taken into account heterosis.

    I hadn't realised you'd joined the dark side.....:LOL:

    Mules are still supreme

    Also, it's a question of getting used to looking at a hairsheep (although the ones in the picture seem to have poorer conformation than the ones I'm used to seeing) - wool hides a lot of sins.

    six and out

    And plenty do - it's quite staggering the way that it has affected some (very "healthy") people I know. For example: PT mate of mine, bit older than me, think he's 41, ex light middleweight, sickeningly fit - got COVID in March, still can barely climb a flight of stairs. Death rate isn't...

    six and out

    You'd expect death rates to lag behind new cases because it doesn't kill people instantly.

    When rewilding goes wrong , (graphic image)

    We had a trip to the animalarium when I was a student - I can see how pretty much anything could escape from there, it was chaos. :ROFLMAO:

    Dogs££££££

    How do you do that? I've never had a vet willing to sell me them - I'd be very interested in that, I give my dogs all their other injections myself....
