We've always drug our horse pastures to break up the potty spots, expose larvae to the sunlight and to redistribute the fertilizing value of the manure. I would think the benefits would work pretty much the same for cow pastures.

We recently started attaching the drag behind the mower, so when we mow pastures, they get dragged as well.

We've used Cedar boughs, peices of welded panels with weight on top (rocks & tires), chain, etc., to drag pastures until we could afford the chain-type harrow we wanted that we now use (which works GREAT).

It does not seem to make the horses turn their noses up at the whole pasture if they are in the one we dragged. I'm not aware if cattle are pickier than horses or not.
