    this field never gets slurry, it's old pasture and normally get a bag of 18/6/12 per acre

    Guarantee you the PH of that field is on the floor.

    Would you top it to clean it up? That's usually what I do & brings good clean grass after which they usually clean out then. Topped a paddock this morning myself as they weren't cleaning it off & some stemy bits which they won't eat.

    Neighbor always says to me if you leave them there long enough they'll eat it that I have them ruined & fussy. 🤣

    If you mow it they'll eat it after 24 hrs when it wilts abit, that's what do with the sheep here if they don't clean off a paddock
