Thanks for your comment. Rush is used here as straw would be, for bedding, the haulage costs of carting in straw now exclude it as an option for small-scale farmers. Locally it is known as "Scruff" it takes 2 years to breakdown enough to be spread back onto the land, so after stock go out it is stacked in "Middens" in the fields to rot.

About Cowgazer

Cowgazer

I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
