Saw a snapchat a few weeks ago where the farmer had lost the front furrow so just ploughed without it. contractor was having fits as he was there to power harrow and drill maize.
what a twit.

no practical 'intelligence.'

that Maize sseed would be just as well still in the bag because temps aren't warm enough for it proper yet, and the wet is compacting in that what is already drilled ,not good for it is too much rain in one go.

he could easily have left it until the plough was fixed and ph and drilled after the deluge and when its warmed up, .
Its the big P that's missing as much as anything in the modern day Patience, that and a bit of nous.

I'm not sure you can learn this stuff tho, i have a feeling that its more in the blood/ in ones 'nature' but i might be wrong of course.

mess of a field damage done will take a few seasons to level out, not sure if you can learn to be that special... always a big rush with the dairy boys and a fair few just crash from calamity to calamity with their crops . Not sure what the crazy rush is at the moment as ambient temps aren’t there.

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...
