Ya between golden rods and butter cups they were a menice to me. I had to till all of one field and replant grass.

^Might need to apply some lime if you are dealing with buttercups, TRR.

Like others have said, there are a few reasons to mow pastures. I just did mine last week, it's looks so much nicer and cutting the weeds lets the grass underneath them thrive.

The state agricultural agent told me the single best thing you can do for your pasture is mow it.

Mowing helps keep weeds under control and keeps the grass growing.

If you need to mow that is a good thing. Means one more month without buying hay. Its when you don't need to mow you should worry.

So true Joe. We've had a dry year so far, I am so very thankful mine are thriving enough to need mowed. I left 2 of ours untouched until last week, made good cattle hay for friends - they did the work and had 20 acres to bale for free.

Who knew! This is all so very educational and I feel so much better about the grass being "gone" now! I'm excited to watch it grow back and see this "miracle" occur!

On the adorable side of things, I just went up there to check on Lacey and the little old people who own the property left a rubbermaid bin, labeled with "Lacey's Treats", filled with apples and carrots next to the gate.
They are TOO CUTE.
