Got thistles? No problem!

Brad and Neil Dennis showed us their creative solution thistles on the ranch:

When they find thistles on their ranch, they don't reach for the weed whacker, they go for the mineral wagon. First they place the mineral wagon next to the thistles. 

Thistle on the Ranch

Then they bring in the cows and let them do the work. The cows stomp down the thistles when going for the minerals. 

Ranch without thistle

The cows get moved back out, and the thistles are gone! Low effort and low cost weed management. 

Thank you Sunnybrae Farms for the ranch hack!
