In an age where practically everything is being diversified, rationalised or restructured, it is good to learn that some things never have to be changed.
In Wales, there is a herd of Welsh Black cattle that have been on the same property for over 350 years with estate records there to prove it.
Stock and tenants have succeeded each other generation after generation and one must therefore assume that the cattle are profitable.
In New Zealand, two of the three breeders who began the importation of Welsh Blacks into the country in the early 1970s are still breeding Welsh Blacks as stud cattle and commercially, and the third has retired from livestock farming.
SO, WHY CHANGE?
Global Performance: Welsh Black cattle are successfully established in a wide variety of climates around the world in such countries as the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, America, Australia and of course New Zealand.
