More details below.
The fences have been checked and are secure. The cattle are scratching at the farm gate to be let on Hob Moor for the season. Tuesday is the day they will start to be brought to the Moor. There will be 68 approx 1-year old heifers. Aberdeen Angus, Limousine, Hereford and Belgium Blue for those of you interested in the breeds that will be grazing on Hob Moor this year. This ancient medieval right of cattle grazing on Hob Moor continues. They may be a bit giddy; you would be too if you’d been kept indoors all winter!!! We ask that you just be respectful of their space and keep an eye that dogs keep their distance too. Thank you.
