The cows are back! Six young cows from Higher Punchardon Farm. Their job is to graze Lower Newland Moor (the field next to the lodges – the field with the turbine) and Popehouse Moor, our Site of Special Scientific Interest. That’s quite a big munch for 6 relatively young cows, but that’s the point – low levels of grazing so the grass is kept in check and the flowers still get a chance.
They’ll be here until about September. It’s a long running tradition now – and the cows are usually quite characters. This lot are named after presidents and prime ministers. Apparently Donald usually brings up the rear.
