When we bought our current place, we got a couple acres of thistles to go with the pasture, plus a healthy population of curly burdock. I go at the big patches with glyphosate in the spring and mid-summer, supplimenting with spot spraying 2-4D to get the odd volunteers I see among the grass monthly. The first year it seemed like I was spraying everywhere, but it gets exponentially easier year after year as the seedbank in the soil gets depleted. I had done this on my previous 30 acre place with a hand sprayer; a few hours each weekend adds up over the season and year after year the problem shrinks.
A typical farm store such as TSC will sell both glyphosate and 2-4D in 2.5 gallon (or larger) quantities which needs to be mixed with water before use. Read the labels(1), but typical application rates are 1-3oz of herbicide per gallon, so that 2.5 gallons goes a long, long ways.
1) Mixing it "hot" by adding more doesn't usually make it more effective, it just wastes herbicide. Follow the directions on the label for best results.
