    You KNEW!!
    I had a section by the east fence that was severely compacted. I ran the tiller over it and it was like tilling cement. I carted in 8 big wheelbarrow, the one with the 2 wheels, loads of tilled garden dirt, then leveled that with the tiller, THEN seeded it, so that the grass's roots had something easy to push through. I'm taking one full year to amend this 3/4 acre pasture. My horses don't get to graze on it again until next June, and the I'll be monitoring them. It should be very tall and lush by then. I'll keep adding to my album as I see more improvements. BTW, the album loaded last to first. You can see that I tilled these areas a full 3x, until the dirt was fluffy.
    I don't worry about the dogs and cats running on it. I'm sure that THAT is important, too. =b

    Good luck with your pastures ! Right now we are fighting tumbleweeds (russian thisle) I hate them and stinging nettles. As soon as the pasture goes totally dormant we will be spraying, if it stays warm enough, to kill the nettle and tumbleweeds.. a pasture is a never ending project ;) I love the grass and the fact I don't have to clean poo!!

    Same here....that's why I " borrowed" neighbor's cows
    He was happy, he didn't have any grass, and I got my pasture cleaned up. And occasionally they even come for a visit to the house....he doesn't keep his fences in order, so they go for excursions but somehow end up with us. More than once I looked out of the window and had a heifer or two grazing my front lawn
