Thanks very much in advance for your assistance.

Stinging nettle

How do I control stinging nettle in my pastures? I have treated with weedar 64 three time this winter and I am not sure if it is not working or the nettle is just coming up so quickly. I have been trying to clear a horse trap because we will be bringing home a newborn filly and her dam to live in this trap. Should I just mow short?.
