Our pastures are now functioning as exercise lots. There is no feed to speak of in them so we are putting hay bales out for the sheep to eat. We’ve done this before during drought and the increased fertilizer from the sheep eating in a concentrated area has improved the soil for the next few years so it’s nota bad solution. Better to spread the manure out with the sheep rather than with machines.
