We have the Galloways segregated from the pre-existing herd of Angus/Devon and British White. The Galloways are reported to eat less than other cattle in the winter, due to their heavy winter coats. Indeed, they were bedded in the snow in Ontario, before they made the trek south. Here, they enjoy hay bedding outdoors (some of our lower-quality bales) and higher quality hay in the bale ring. They have a space in the hoop barn where they can seek shelter when the weather gets bad, but they love the outdoors in most kinds of weather. We are enjoying observing how the Galloways are different from our other cattle.
