can anyone remember him getting anything wrong ? typical yorkshire . how would he coped with cross compliance ie 2m no spray zones hedgerows etc.
He didn’t have any grass weed problems. He first of all sprayed all the hedges and secondly employed Gladys to do the roguing 👍👍👍
Often made the point that he used less chemical in total by having a zero tolerance to grass weeds on/from boundaries and hedges.

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
