Yearling steer in gorse bush Hillcroft Conservation Grazing

Hillcroft Conservation Grazing is a partnership of Rue Ekins and Richard Collingridge. We're both professional ecologists with long involvement in conservation management in southern Britain. For many years we've been encouraging landowners to graze their nature conservation sites. By doing grazing ourselves we hope to show how difficulties can be overcome and neglected sites can be brought back into good heart. We're based on the edge of the New Forest near the market town of Ringwood, in southern England close to the Hampshire-Dorset border.
