The Rural Estate farmers have taken delivery of 11 Red Ruby Devon heifers, the first cattle to arrive as part of the share farming enterprise between the Baxter Brothers and Nene Park Trust.

The Red Ruby Devon are an ancient native breed, the roots of which can be traced back to Roman times, perhaps not insignificant given the existence of the ancient Roman settlement on the Rural Estate.

The cattle will be located in Tumuli Field in Castor to begin with, so please be vigilant when crossing the field and give them a wide berth. Dogs should be kept on a lead and please ensure you shut all gates behind you.

The farmers hope that these cattle will be a feature on the more prominent areas of the Rural Estate in the not too distant future and we look forward to the first calves arriving in Spring 2022.
