Can anyone tell me how to get rid of goat weeds and grass burrs from pasture areas?

Grass will choke out the weeds if the soil has the proper pH and nutrients. You might want to get a soil sample and see what the pH is and if you need any fertilizer. Regular maintenance is easier then ignoring a pasture for years and then trying to reestablish it when it has gone to pot. Not to say that is what you are doing but you should get a soil sample every 3 or so years. They are very inexpensive, if you collect the soil samples yourself (take alot from various places in the field) it will cost about $8 - $10.

Mowing several times during the season will tend to give grasses advantage over anything with leaves.

You might try keeping the pasture mowed real close. I think both mentioned weeds are annuals, so if they don't go to seed they may not come back next spring.
