Dock in pasture

Hi All,

The locally recommended way of eradicating dock weed in pasture is to spray 
(spot or boom) with MCPA and a detergent. While I am not going for organic 
certification I would prefer not to spray on both philosophical and 
financial reasons. High winter rainfall (around 60 inches in US terms) 
means I get a lot of dock in the lower paddocks. Any ideas out there for 
alternative methods of control? Grubbing them out by hand is just not an 
option due to the area involved.
