Will you cut this strip later this year or next spring? Do you cut the mohican in a different location each year?

I'll put the cows in that field later in the Autumn, and they'll pick about and sleep on it, but they won't graze it short. I've only been leaving mohicans for a few years and, rightly or wrongly, I do try to move them to prevent the establishment of vigorous grasses (cocksfoot).
