The Cattle Herd
Last year's heifers
Some of our replacements keeping warm indoors before going out in spring
Our new Simmental heifers
These girls are the first cattle (other than bulls) we have bought onto the farm since 2009! 6 pedigree Simmental heifers from the Sacombe herd in Hertfordshire, established in 1970 the first recorded Simmental herd in the country. Importantly they are high health status from a low risk TB area. They are very friendly!
