Willow Munching (Video)
The two belted Galloway cattle, Wayne and Waynetta, are quick to eat the more nutritional willow scrub in the North Riverside Pasture whilst the Shetlands eat lower protein content winter grass. Waynetta, in particular, is making the most of the willow scrub and Wayne is mopping up green bramble leaves. We will cut what is left of the willow scrub in early next year.
Willow contains acetylsalicylic acid, so it might be that Waynetta has a headache.
