The British blues

Not only do we have a litter of 10 rare breed piglets to meet this summer, we have just bought two British Blue Cross heifers.

The calves are only one month old and will be reared by our rangers in the Animal Village until they’re old enough to go outside and graze.

Not yet named, the calves are a British Blue/Fresian cross usually raised for meat, although we would like to keep them to breed with and to graze our paddocks.

The calves are stabled in the Animal Village, and you can watch a video of them meeting our summer intern, Jack:
