Mowing is generally required in the spring and through the fall to remove excess forage and/or to reduce weeds, (although herbicides are generally more effective and economical to control weeds than mowing alone). Pasture mowers range from small riding mowers to 20-foot-wide batwing mowers. Consider your farm and tractor’s size when purchasing.
