After speaking to a local farmer

After speaking to a local farmer about their experience i am trying to remove sieves (rushes) from some of my land to improve the pasture for cows.

I found they are turning over areas without sieves and leaving the areas with sieves.

The area would be impossible to plough plus I want to keep lost if the sward intact.

I’m now feeding their pig ration into the sieves themselves and it is starting to work. The first week I have 26 pigs at work. I think I’ll move some more on to speed up the process.

It is as extensively free range as you can get though and I look forward to trying the pork from these pigs!
