Our livestock help create homes for wildlife.
Livestock are vital to habitat management at our reserves: they remove vigorous grass and scrub, allowing rare plants to flourish, and create bare ground and dung which together provide food and homes for wildlife such birds, bees and other insects. The Trust's team of cows, sheep, goats and pigs help us to manage our nature reserves in a sustainable manner.
