Pinguis Herd

John Williams, Shropshire

This dual purpose herd of 12 cows, bull plus young stock are kept on the small holding of 15 acres in North Shropshire.

The ground is light and I find the cattle thrive well in both wet and dry seasons. All cattle are housed for February and March to rest the ground.

During the winter the cattle are fed on silage or hay and a small amount of corn for those in-milk feeding calves.

I find them a placid breed and very economical to keep.
