Winter Paddock Care Advice
Categories: None | Tags: None
Without doubt Winter can mean limited time for many people with daylight hours restricted but it is still important to remember to look after your paddocks.
Regular management throughout the Autumn and Winter months will help paddocks flourish by the time Spring arrives.
Keep an eye on the condition of your paddocks and try and spend some time at the weekends thinking how best to keep them in decent order.
During wet periods paddocks can easily get poached so try to rotate the land regularly to allow the grass time to rest.
If poached areas occur, perhaps around gateways, try alternating different entrances. Matting can be laid to protect the ground in Spring, but during Winter try wood chip or straw to absorb the moisture.
A daily check of your boundaries, fence and gates should be carried out to ensure everything is secure and cannot cause injury. Remove all droppings, weeds or rubbish that maybe in the field.
When Spring arrives identify if your paddock is lacking nutrients. You may want to give your grass a boost with Suregrow Fertiliser, ideal for sustained grass growth it helps to stimulate root development and strength.
