Bulls and Walking

At some time or other, you will come across Cows, Bullocks (castrated bulls) and Bulls in a field where there is a right of way.

Cows and bullocks are rarely aggressive but may walk or run towards you out of curiosity.

Bulls however can be a different matter.

A bull of up to ten months old can be kept in a field crossed by a public path. Bulls over ten months of a recognised dairy breed (Ayrshire, British Friesian, British Holstein, Dairy Shorthorn, Guernsey, Jersey and Kerry) are banned from fields crossed by public paths under all circumstances.

All other bulls over ten months are banned unless accompanied by cows or heifers.

If any bulls act in a way which endangers the public, an offence may be committed under health and safety legislation and you should report it the police and the Ramblers Association.

It is best not to take dogs into fields containing cows with young calves.

Stallions, boars and cows with calves should all be treated with caution.
