As I have said before I am a lazy farmer. If they are giving rain I will put the polywire up a day or more ahead of needing it. I have several reels so put it up whenever and when I am ready to turn in that section I just roll up the previous one. I don't backfence when grazing stockpile .Based on that setup, have you ever thought about using those tumble wheels? I am just thinking about having to move all those step-ins if it is really cold and raining. I have no idea what they cost though.
That is some good looking grass. At what point, if at all, do you brush hog it during the summer? After the first grazing?
The field in the picture is 8 acres. I will strip it multiple times as they graze. When I move to the next paddock I won't let them return to this one until spring unless I unroll some hay on it late in the winter.
