#SaveTheHerd at Dinefwr
We are in a race against time to save the future of our famous White Park Cattle. The cattle have been at Dinefwr for over one thousand years, but we now need to urgently raise £36,000 to buy a new bull and introduce new females to keep the bloodline alive and #SaveTheHerd.
Why are they so special?
Our White Park Cattle are a living link to our very distant past with records of them at Dinefwr dating back to the year 920 when they were referenced in the laws of Hywel Dda (Hywel the Good), who codified the laws of Wales.
With just 750 breeding females left in the world, these animals are rarer than the Giant Panda.

White Park Cattle Run
Our first big fundraising push will take place on 23 September, when we hold our annual White Park Cattle Run. This year, the National Trust’s proceeds from the event will go towards the White Park Cattle #SaveTheHerd fund.
Runners can choose to run either 10k or 5k around the scenic route, with a fun run for children also taking place.
