Transcript of the Belted Galloway Cattle

0:00
so here at Forge Mill Farm we have some
0:02
of these cows called belted getaways one
0:06
is just behind me here and one is
0:08
wandering off over there and they’ve got
0:12
a quite special look about them when you
0:15
see in the middle of their body they’ve
0:18
got these white stripes that’s what
0:21
gives them their name that belt is why
0:24
we call them Belties the Belted Galloway
0:26
and no one truly knows where they
0:28
originate from but we do know that the
0:31
Galloway Cattle comes from Scotland so
0:34
we have a good idea that that might be
0:36
where they’re from and they are very
0:39
very hardy they can live on the top of
0:41
hills and not eat a lot of food but be
0:44
very much okay with everything and they
0:46
produce amazing quality meat and are
0:50
very good mothers as well so we’re
0:52
pleased to have three heifers here who
0:55
are only young but one day we’ll have
0:56
very cute babies who will come out
0:58
stripy like these guys we’ve got this
1:01
done coloured one here we’ve got two of
1:02
those and we’ve got a black and white
1:04
one as well who everybody thinks looks
1:07
like an Oreo so check them out when
1:10
you’re here have a look and hopefully
1:12
one day we’ll see them have some
1:13
beautiful stripy babies.
