    not looked at the vid and I agree its good to be positive but when the writings on the wall you have to know when to face the fact that the job is screwed and there is no harm in telling others that, in fact its a positive thing to do

    Yes a positive can quite often come from a negative in life:cool:

  14. welp - the tups coming to a close and im all bent out of shap re the plan - just hoping that the fields ive been using get some growth on them pre any march cold snap
    just because i think ive grazed them a tad too tight too early.

    I have very limited experience of it, where the wife used it as cover crop in the vegetable garden this year. Germinates faster than anything else and makes a nice cover, although I think I remember reading it can cause photosensitivity if grazed.

    don't you know you cant GRAZE something that tall ??
    think of the waste ?
    think of the trampling ?

    https://thefarmingforum.co.uk/index...-with-strong-crop-of-volunteer-barley.256506/

    you need to get the biggest heaviest machines you can find to cut / chop / bale / silage / cart / plough all that away before it gets wasted

    bloody kiwis with your unfair advantages & wasted resources :mad:
    youre as bad as those crass Americans & their management speak, thinking theyre better . . .
     
  17. None so blind as those that won’t see Royston!!

  18. To be fair ... and to read a bit deeper ;)
    PBH does rotational grazing with his ewes I believe,.. Brisel again is another v. learned poster
    the comment about grazing was about the fact that round here we say 'eat it off' not 'graze it off '...and we have doing so since well before even the Americans were out shooting Bison.
