Tree blown over blocking lane, exit via fields only, reported to highways dept. Who gives 28 days to solve the problem🥺, looks like matters to be taken in hand by the telehandler!!!..........What do we pay the council for,🤷.
We managed to get quite a bit of rain here, past few days, managed to seaweed fertilise the pasture, so hopefully it will have all soaked in by now. The only issue are the gale force winds 🙄 how is it looking for you all at the moment?

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

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...
