Bulls and public footpaths

27 February 2011 13:25 | Comments: 0 | Categories:

According to the Ramblers Association, a farmer is entitled to keep bulls of up to 10-months-old in a field with a public footpath.

Bulls more than 10-months-old of a recognised dairy breed - Ayrshire, British Friesian, British Holstein, Dairy Shorthorn, Guernsey, Jersey and Kerry - are banned from fields crossed by public paths under all circumstances.

All other bulls over 10 months are banned unless accompanied by cows or heifers. If any bulls act in a way which endangers the public, an offence may be committed under health and safety legislation.
