GRAZING belted galloway cows on Lynchmere Common will be leaving the Heathland next month to have their calves in nearby fields. Edwin Brooks of Lynchmere Community Grazing Cows Club said: “There are a dozen off them and they came onto the big common in late October and have done a fantastic job of grazing down the scrub. “We are hoping at least three of them are in calf, and in February we will be moving them all to fields where the pregnant ones will calve.”

CONSERVATION-grazing Belted Galloway cows on Lynchmere Common will be leaving the heathland next month to have their calves in nearby fields.

Edwin Brooks of Cow Club (www.lynchmeregrazing.com) said: “Our trial reintroduction of grazing for The Lynchmere Society has been a great success – they have done a fantastic job of grazing down the scrub which is vital for creating habitat. We’d like to thank all the responsible dog owners, Cow Club members and the local community – fingers crossed we have a few calves this spring.”
