A message from our local farmers 🙂
We have some younger animals in the lower fields at Lewesdon and the Angus bull, which is up in the higher fields, is desperately trying to get with them as he has done his business with his older girls.
The gate connecting the two groups has been pushed open by him a couple of times or left open unwittingly by walkers. We have put a chain and lock on it and ask if people could use the pedestrian gate in the east corner of the field if they are unable to climb over.
The ramifications of a big bull on young heifers is not a good outcome so hopefully people understand this temporary measure until the grass grows and we can move him elsewhere.
