Ragwort

Ragwort is poisonous to cattle and horses and even more so once it has been cut and dried during hay production. Ragwort produces vast amounts of seeds which are dispersed by the wind meaning they spread quickly. Therefore each year we walk around our meadows in Ippikins and the Much Wenlock car park, pulling out ragwort. There used to be large amounts growing in our meadows but we are happy to report that only a few handfuls were found this year. This means that our management has been successful!
