Marking Day Safety Warning

More cows than for several years have been freed to roam the Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons for the summer. Over 400 cattle and a small group of horses were released to graze the National Trust pastures after the traditional annual Marking Day in mid-May. The animals' arrival prompted a plea to drivers to slow their speeds on roads across the commons to avoid collisions with cattle. "They are friendly … but also big, heavy animals, and can be unpredictable," said the graziers' spokesman. Marking Day is named after a former practice of marking, or tagging, the cows all together at Old Lodge.
