The beauty of cattle in the ecosystem

When cattle’s hooves break the surface of the sward, it gives room for seeds to germinate. Here, mouse ear, yarrow and yellow rattle are growing in the soil revealed.

When worms or beetles are attracted to feed in cattle dung, badgers come and dig through the dung to find worms and beetles. This creates bare soil and  an opportunity for different plants to grow.

Greater diversity equals a healthier, more resilient and more beautiful ecosystem.
