Sad to comment here that Mike Childerley died a couple of days ago. RIP Mike. A true gentleman. Well known and well liked and loved by many. An honest man. A man of principle, helpful and kind. Good to see The European Vintage Ploughing movement, of which Mike was a big part, commenting through Jan De Pinth.

So sorry to hear that news, he was a huge man in many ways a gentle giant, highly respected in his work place and the ploughing world will be missed by many. :cry:

Why the angry reaction Ford 7810. Surely no need for anger over the passing of one of the most honest and pleasant guys ever to grace this planet with his presence. Long may his memory remain.

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...
