Do you fancy keeping fit whilst getting some fresh air? Would you like to help us check our amazing grazers in particular our ‘udderley’ brilliant Dexter Cattle to make sure they’re in good health? We're after Livestock volunteers to help us monitor our conversation grazers.

You might be wondering why Yorkshire Wildlife Trust have Livestock at our reserves! We manage over 100 reserves, restoring biodiversity, protecting habitats and wildlife and providing wonderful opportunities for visitors to get close up and see some of our most enthralling wildlife. Part of the management of many of our grassland, fen and heathland reserves is carried out by grazing animals. Grazing helps control competitive ‘rough’ plant species that can out-compete the finer, more interesting species of grass and wildflower that we seek to encourage. Livestock on the reserves need to be checked to ensure that their health is good, and that they are still all there.
