Belted Galloways
We hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, and have not been too cold in all this snow!
We have had a good start to 2013 as we welcomed 17 new pedigree Belted Galloway cattle onto land situated in the depths of the Yorkshire Wold. Although all of our beef comes from our family farm in Thornholme we wanted to, alongside our existing beef breeding plan, nurture a breed of native pedigree cattle. We have always loved Belted Galloway and find them to be incredibly hardy and a fantastic breed to make the most grazing the historic Wolds. All the cattle are heifers and will be put in calf this spring using Artificial Insemination (AI) as we have chosen not to run a bull with our herd. After much deliberation over a name for our herd (thank you to all those who came up with suggestions), we have decided to go along the traditional route of using place names and chosen the 'Thornholme Belted Galloway' herd or 'Thornholme Belties' for short! We look forward to updating you on their progress in the coming months
