Save Dinefwr's White Park Cattle appeal

Our White Park Cattle herd have been with us for more than 1,000 years. They’re a real icon of Dinefwr and an important living link to our long and distant past. But they’re in danger and so is their habitat.

We're fundraising to #SaveTheHerd

Our Stockman, explains why we're fundraising to save our legendary herd of White Park Cattle

" We urgently need to increase the number of cows in the Dinefwr herd not only to save this magnificent animal from extinction, but to safeguard our links to Welsh history and to sustain the flower rich hay meadows on our estate."
- Rhodri, Academy Ranger at Dinefwr

How the appeal adds up

  • We have 800 acres of parkland which our herd helps conserve
  • There are just 20 breeding females and 12 youngsters left in our cattle herd
  • It's been over 1,000 years that we’ve had the White Park Cattle herd with us
