I still don't understand what "weed wiping" is.

Have a watch of Logic's video, that should explain - and show - it for you.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

I am into the second winter of strip grazing a wet rushy field, with back fence, and the treading of the plants has really thinned them out already.  I hope to get some summer grazing on the field next year too as stock levels have increased.

Assume this is with cattle.

Equines. Two mules, a native pony and a warmblood horse with heavy feet.
