Galloways at Druridge BaySix new grassland managers have taken up residence at Druridge Bay Country Park.

They will join their Highland neighbours on the dunes, helping to keep the wildflower meadows and grasslands in good condition.

Druridge Bay Country Park manager Graham Mitcheson introduced the Belted Galloways, Black Galloways and Red Pole heifers into the park back in March.

“They’re still pretty young but they are settling in to their new home,” said Graham. “They’ve been in the fields up till now, but they’ll be joining the two Highland cattle we have on the dunes very soon. Some of the grassland we have is too hard to manage with machinery, but the rare breed cows are perfect for the job”
