It was, especially as what we were doing already was the best way anyway  ;D

I'm now considering hiring my goats out to my neighbours  :innocent:

Was it cutting / grazing that was recommended?

Cutting for those who are goatless ????
But ideally you need them cut or grazed before the seed heads appear to prevent new outbreak and those you have need dug up or turned over to at least 8 inches deep then reseeded with grass etc

Hmmm, will continue with cutting. Digging them out isn't going to happen  ::)
