We try to spray for the weeds in the spring. Any that come back late, get brush-hogged now. Husband (and his 17 yr old helper he has that is trying to learn how to work) have been brush-hogging every day for about 3 hours. Ours is not bad, but the 80 acre lease next door was really grown up.
We hate to see the weeds compete with the grass.
We hate to see the weeds get mature and go to seed.
We have seen many horses and cattle, too, that have gotten scratched eyes and eye infections in the fall from reaching for grass through the tall weeds. Horses seem to negotiate the rough ground quite well. Their eyes do not fare nearly as well.
