Improving pasture

A pasture is the field where cattle find grass to eat.

In order to have tender, young grass, divide the pasture into four parts.

Each week put the cattle in one part, and let the grass grow in the other parts.

At the end of four weeks go back to the first part


The four weeks

After the herd has been through the pasture, cut the weeds before they seed, so that they won't multiply.
