  • As we move into fall, our grazed pastures may be showing areas of thin vegetative cover and bare soil. Weedy vegetation, like common ragweed and other summer annuals, may already be present, but as these plants die back naturally, cool-season weeds will take their place:  chickweed, henbit and purple deadnettle. Other weeds such as buttercup and musk thistle will likely be more prevalent in the next spring.
