Large grazers

At various places in Kempen~Broek, there are large grazers such as Exmoor Ponies, Konik horses, Galloways and Taur oxen.  The latter is the intended successor to the primeval cattle. By crossing primitive European cattle breeds, the aim is to breed a completely self-sufficient cow that matches the primeval cattle as closely as possible.

It is important not to disturb the animals. They must remain wild animals. Supplementary feeding is strictly prohibited! Only in extreme situations are the animals given supplementary feed by the competent nature managers.

Therefore, some important rules of thumb apply when entering nature reserves with large grazers:

•Do not stroke

•Do not feed

•Keep at least 25m distance

•Do not cross the herds

•Leash dogs and keep distance
