I would agree with SMD66 get pigs. 
Pig Cost 30-ish
Pig Ark- you can make it your self.
Pig Fencing  (eletric) Can cost a bit.
.....

Have you thought about pigme goats?

Or if you have space inside for the winter what about Dexters?

... and about pigs... the bloke on the next bit of land said i needed to make sure i got 'silage' removed as it was the law.

I know nothing about this.  What's this all about.  Is silage the pig's waste bedding?? Don't pigs manure the land as they go for you?

i thought i could put a couple of pigs out on the bit of land i needed them to be on and they would basically prepare that bit of land for me to dig on the next season/year.  Shows how much more research i need to do to make sure i have the right animal (or strimmer/scythe!)

You could 'poo pick' for the compost heap if you want, they tend to go in one particular area, away from their bed and where they are fed.  What's left on the ground breaks down and isn't that smelly.  We rotavated it in and grew loads of veg where our first lot had been, everything came really well.   :D
