“Shepherdswell Helena, Ed’s Gloucester cattle” YANA day 92 of 100

posted in: YANA | 0

My great grandfather came from Gloucestershire so I like to imagine that these cattle were familiar to him. The Gloucester are an ancient breed from the Severn valley since the 13th century but are now at risk with less than 750 females. So it is great that there are people like Ed Smith championing them.

Originally England’s oldest dairy breed they are best known for supplying the milk to make Double and Single Gloucester.
