Summer 2021 Herd Visit

We are pleased to announce plans for a BGCS Southern Breeders’ Group herd visit this summer, (subject to any further Government restrictions).

The date set is Saturday 28th August and the venues will be the Wisley herd at the Surrey Wildlife Trust near Ripley and the Wotton herd belonging to the Matthews family at Manor Farm, Wotton, near Dorking. The day will commence at 10am with a visit to two SWT grazing sites followed by lunch at the Trust’s Bonhurst Farm. We will then travel independently to Wotton herd to see the cattle there and hear about the farm business, followed by tea.

This is an excellent opportunity to see two sizeable but quite different operations, both utilising Belted Galloways to do what they do best in producing excellent beef whilst aiding bio-diversity. There will be a nominal charge on the day towards costs and we will be asking for commitment for planning purposes – please advise either Jeremy Loxton, Alison Bunning or Deb Powell if you would like to attend.
