The Rare Breeds Society of NZ conducted a field tour in conjunction with their 2016 AGM which was held at Staglands Wildlife Park in the Akatarawa Valley near Upper Hutt. As part of that Field Tour members visited nearby Suncrest White Galloway Cattle Stud on Sunday 15 May to inspect White Galloway Cattle which are registered in New Zealand as a Rare Breed.

Fortunately the day was fine so members enjoyed the opportunity to get up close and personal with the cattle. The visitors seemed very impressed with the depth of girth and solidness of the Suncrest stock, some commenting that they really reminded them of the conformation of the original English heritage breeds in the UK.
