Galloway Cattle by KeldBach Galloway Cattle by KeldBach
A small herd of Galloway cattle grassing in an old gravel pit that recently has been made into a nature reserve.

The Galloway is one of the world's longest established breeds of beef cattle, named after the Galloway region of Scotland, where it originated. It is now found in many parts of the world. The Galloway is naturally hornless, and instead of horns has a bone knob at the top of its skull called the poll. This breed's shaggy coat has both a thick, woolly undercoat for warmth and stiffer guard hairs that help shed water, making them well adapted to harsher climates. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galloway…

Here's another view from that area:

I haven't tried it yet. Most of the best meat gets exported to other countries while we're left with the lesser quality meat here :(

That's very kind of you, Will, but I can get it here from a selected butcher's shop - if I'm prepared to pay the price :D

Thanks very much, Dennis. The slowly moving cattle gave me plenty of time to care for the composition as well :)
