What animals? It seems with sheep and goats, there is very little cleanup needed. At least in my area. Thistle can be hit with a shovel to break it at ground level. They tend to be in patches vs the entire acreage. Diligence to keep it from seeding this year should oay off in following years.

I wanted to start stocking light to make sure the pasture can handle the load. We will also be running a chicken tractor with them, roughly 6 chickens. If they cannot handle the load with the growth, I may add sheep as well, but would prefer to wait for the pigs to see if it's needed. I'm thinking I may want to mow for a few reasons 1. Stocking is light and I'm not sure if that many animals will be able to eat all the pasture in 1 week. 2. My pasture is heavily invested with sunflowers and weeds.
