Pasture ploughed

 The pasture near our home has not been ploughed in over 30 years that we have lived here so we were sad to see it sprayed and ploughed. 
We understand that the field is to be drilled with maize a forage crop used to feed cattle later in the year. Maize is much more nutritious than grass for forage and also less critical in terms of when it can be harvested so makes good sense to farmers as our weather gets less and less reliable.
We will miss seeing the cattle in the field though.
