    Abergain, aberchoice, astonenergy and oakpark. And clover as your buddy prob is putting it in after tillage so no docks or nettles or thistles etc so either a handy chem or a topper will sort it.

    Grass sown on 31 of August coming on nicely, probably could be grazed in the next few weeks if growth keeps up.

    Only get one shot at it, the bunnies are happily grazing it but I'd need to strip graze them, or just get a machine gun...

    Hopefully you will get some decent weather to clip it off with stock before a harsh winter comes along. Did you sow it with the Bogballe after?

    No, got it sowed with an air seeder mounted on a Heva disc/press combo. Impressive machine. Might have to borrow sheep to trim it down, I'd be afraid the cattle would have a disco on it.
