Sponsor a Longhorn Cow
Our Longhorn cow Says…
Mooooooo! Pleased to meet you, I’m a longhorn cow, and I’m pretty sure you haven’t seen many of me before. That’s because in this country there are very few of us left, though we are popular in America. The RSPB would like a small herd of us to graze on one of their nature reserves, which will allow wildflowers to grow and provide nest sites for many animals and birds such as lapwings and skylarks. If you could sponsor me you would help to pay my vets bills and food so that I can be part of creating a beautiful British landscape that will flourish with new inhabitants.

Longhorn cattle are used to extreme climates, and can find food or shelter during tough times, and can breed well into their teens. A longhorn cow are calm animals and will often find a safe place to give birth to a calf then bring it home. They are sociable animals who like to spend time in herds with their friends and family. When they all get to together they can be quite noisy!
