What price is that an acre? Looks a good feed.
We usually run short of good grub this time of year, and the cows usually get fed up of the same paddocks so a few fresh feeds are very grateful. This year a bit different, lots of grass about, have autumn born calves on it but they arnt doing, I'm thinking of swopping them around with some older beef, cows going dry so heading for big third cut.

We had a lot of rain here last week, slurry/dirty water om 2nd cut long washed in, clovers are looking strong, couple off feilds like white carpets.
I was expecting to have to sell some tb stores as carrying a lot more stock than previous but I think we will be fine, am still learning how much we can grow organic.

Always struggle with growing grass here, maize is THE crop for dry areas...
