A drop of rain rarely stops at that. After one of the best autumns I can remember with terrific grass growth the rain has all but spoilt it. It was beginning to look like spring revisited but the difference at this time of year is how wet the ground stays. The amount of grass here at this moment in time is unprecedented but the amount of rain that has fallen recently isnt far behind it. Like one long april shower and typical of the last two years, rain has fallen heavily and for prolonged periods. Its not surprising the ground is saturated once more, leaving me with the 'to graze or not to graze' dilemma. Even a network of tracks is now not enough, as the ground is barely strong enough to hold a cow. So why are will still grazing now? Welll, firstly there is too much grass on most fields to carry through the winter and secondly because its not me who moves the fence for the cows. So its not me who has to whince at the mess thats being made. Its much easier to make decisions when you cant see the consequences.
