There has been a huge backlog this spring, from fertiliser and slurry spreading to achieving grazing targets. Yet, due to how wet many soils are, it will take nearly a week for some soils to be trafficable.

But this dry spell represents a good opportunity for most farmers on drier soils to get out grazing. The target for most farmers is to have about 20% of the farm grazed by now, but because of the weather most farmers have little or nothing grazed yet.
