Frosty dry fields

Just been out with the dog across the fields ,its frosty and cold but i dont think it would take much to break the crust .
Told myself the same.... ;)

I had booked Herself to move an electric fence and the Sucklers, although they did not take any moving..... FOOD!!!!! So they were happy to be out today, and not sheltering all day in a shed. Like us really...

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...
