By Stephen J. G. Hall, John Fletcher, Josephine Gidlow, Brian Ingham, Andrew Shepherd, Alistair Smith and Austen Widdows


The Chillingham Wild White Cattle have a unique place in the British fauna. They are one of the very few\ud herds of cattle anywhere in the world that have a natural sex ratio and age distribution, and there is no castration\ud nor culling. This article looks at the herd from a veterinary point of view. Livestock and wildlife legislation in the UK was not drafted with freeliving\ud cattle in mind, and this article outlines the steps that are taken to ensure compliance
