Photographer's Note

On Dartmoor where farmers make the most of pastures that are available to feed their animals.

These are Belted Galloway cattle. They are thought to have evolved in the 17th century as a result of cross breeding between the native Black Galloway cattle of western Scotland and the Dutch Lakenvelde belted cattle.
They are well adapted to living on the poor upland pastures and windswept moors.
They are a stocky medium sized cow with a thick shaggy coat in winter.

Renowned for their lean meat.

One more view in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
