Ok, a weird one (as usual). I live on a pasture/hayfield. It's incredibly vigorous, and I don't have the equipment to till sections at this moment to have a good veggie garden. I will for next year. Anyway I bought about 20 pounds of JA's. I'd like to get a big huge patch going- sort of for emergency food. I don't care if they spread. I've grown them B4, I know how crazy they get. They are getting soft and need to get planted now, meaning they won't get a tilled spot, just plunked into holes like tulips would be. However!!!!! If planted in the field, will they be grazed on by grazers? Are the tops ok to be eaten by cattle/goats/sheep/horses?? Will they be destroyed, or left as last resort by these critters? How about for hay? Will there be any issue if they are hayed with the rest of the field? It's this 10 acre field, I have plenty of plans for it but at the moment I'm not even sure where to build the house as of yet and there is no layout. There is really no feasible way of containing them here. The water table is very high over winter and I'm afraid they may even rot. Any thoughts on this? I was thinking of letting them go wild (LOL) in the back scrub area, but figured there'd never really be grazers back there to keep them in check so they would go crazy. At least in the hayfield/pasture they 'may' be kept in check? Thanks.
