When do I slash after planting a new pasture?

Hello, my neighbour was growing strawberries on my land for a few years and has now stopped. As I don’t wish to farm at present I have planted a generic pasture grass that is 40% Rhodes and a mix of other grasses. This was planted to prevent/reduce weeds and to make it mowable and keep it neat. The pasture is now waist height and going to seed. My question is when do I slash to ensure the best results? Thanks for taking the time to read and respond. Cheers Wayne.

Sheep and Cattle Per Acre

Hi,

I am located out in the Central West of NSW and have 40 acres of pasture which haven't been grazed on and haven't been improved in any way for years. I was wondering how many calves which are friesian x beef calves ranging from 6-12 months who are all small because they were poddy calves I can have per acre. Also have full grown sheep with and without lambs (Suffolk, Poll Dorsets, Merino X) who I was also wondering how many I can have per acre.

Any help anyone can give me is much appreciated. Thanks Jack
