7th November: Grazing already making a big impact

Our sheep have been moved once more, and now you can really see the result of their grazing over just a couple of weeks!

 Their new pen - compare how long the vegetation is...

...with the previously grazed area - the sheep are great at grazing the grass so it is very short. They are intensively grazing a small area to target Michaelmas Daisy.

In comparison with the sheep, the cattle are grazing a larger area but less intensively

The cattle produce a really varied sward height, perfect for insects and birds come the breeding season

One of our cows doing what they do best
