It can depend what your cattle are adapted to - we have tons of clover here too and we did run into trouble with what's best translated to "inbye cattle" - we had a couple develop waterbelly which is usually only a grain-fed cattle issue.I was worried about my cattle bloating on the first field. Last year I had too many cattle in the dry year, this time the opposite .
I don’t want to be rude but that is made up nonsense. You could say the same about tomatoes but we don’t get overrun by them.Have mentioned before that clover responds very well to rising background CO2 levels and this accounts for some of the vigourous growth we see nowadays
Can you have too much money in your bank account?Clover grows well here, but I think it’s got a bit out of hand this year.
First pic is year 3 of a 6 year ley. Been silaged and grazed( probably too hard last year). Getting a bit docky as well, so might get put into wheat this year.
Second pic is 1st year of a 5 yr ley, sown last autumn. Had sheep last winter then has had 2 cuts. No fertiliser since, as no one wants the grass, but looks like I will have to cut it again as the tack sheep would get lost in it.View attachment 832370View attachment 832371View attachment 832370View attachment 832371
Not only the tack costs but the golden hoof free of charge and fat sheeps, win win for all.
