Calves…calves…calves..lots of beautiful Beltie calves arrive in May!

April and May have seen a flurry of new calves being born down on the marshes, here is a selection of beautiful photographs taken down on the marshes of some of this years little ones from friend and photographer Caroline Tillett .

We have used our dun beltie Bull Waveney Harnser so this year so far lots of little dun beauties have been born. 2022 is a “w” year for names so far we have a Willow, Wren, Willy Wonka, Wendi, Wizard, Whisky, Wayne and Wiggle…if you have any suggestions for 2022 calf names let us know!

All of our cattle are Pedigree and registered with the Belted Galloway Cattle Society, “belties” are a native breed, 10 years ago they were on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust watch list, but now thankfully numbers are doing well and the breed is secure for the forseeable.
