Cattle can get very excited when they see a dog nearby – and it can feel a little scary. With the help of Mo the dog, farmer Rich shares his advice on safely walking a dog through a field of cattle. His top tip? Keep calm.

About Rich and his farm

Rich Heady is a mixed farmer in Buckinghamshire. He has cattle, sheep and crops on his farm. Rich says; “Come and join me for the highs and lows of farming cattle and sheep, along with growing a variety of crops for us and our animals to eat. Laugh with me, laugh at me, I don’t mind, just come and see how great British food is produced and why we do what we do.”
