11 Cause of Major Problem - UK Reportage DSC_3579

The presence of moles for farmers is more than just unsightly mole hills. The soil can be far more of a problem. When cutting grass for cattle feed if just a small amount of soil from the molehill becomes mixed in with the grass the grass will become contaminated and have a detrimental affect on any cattle that consumes it.
