Stu the Dexter

We would like to introduce you to Stu and his friends Jeff and Giant.

Stu is a yearling Dexter, owned by a group affectionately known as ‘Cow Club’. Stu and his small herd are grazing The Dranges Nature Reserve. The Dranges is owned and managed by The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales.

The Dranges is a mixture of woodland, wetland and Rhos pasture, and it has the potential to be an important site for Marsh Fritillary Butterfly. Stu and his friends are now part of the team managing the habitat to create the perfect conditions this endangered butterfly.

Watch this space for updates as the project progresses!
