Belted Galloway at Abinger Roughs

We're pleased to announce that this winter we're reintroducing grazing cattle to Abinger Roughs for the first time since the late 19th-century, and we're delighted to welcome five local Belted Galloway to the roughs. Grazing cattle do a wonderful job of maintaining and improving grassland biodiversity and also improve soil habitats and carbon capture. Safety is our highest priority, and the cattle are monitored for their calmness and behaviour around walkers. When around livestock, please keep your dog on a lead and under close control and close any gates behind you.
