These older cattle at Foxholes Farm in Hertfordshire are approaching thirty months and nearly ready for slaughter. Some of the bulls pictured here are of the 'Limousin' breed. These are being phased out, as they are far more aggressive than the other breeds kept on the farm, such as 'Aberdeen Angus' or 'Simmental'. When ready the cattle (about one or two a week) are taken to an abattoir near Chelmsford or Oxford and then to a local butcher. Picture taken 23 February 2007.
