Back from the Lippeaue

My first trip to the Lippeaue, the largest Taurus cattle breeding site in Germany and where the breed had its start, was in 2013. Now, two years later, I visited the reserve Naturreservat Lippeauen in Germany again to see how the herd developed within the the last two years. 
At the moment I am preparing a large, extensive post on my trip and the animals with lots of pictures, but it will take its time until it is finished. So for now, a little teaser in form of a photo:

  3. Hi Daniel,

    I am a keen follower of your blog and re wilding in general. Hopefully some day these back breds will be left alone in large tracks of land with predators. baby sitting will stop and we will let these species interact without inteference. I hear wolves are slowly recovering in Europe on their own.

  5. good foto, showing a bull which looks quite auerochslike - apart from the partly brownish skin colour. Especially the proportions of the skull and the shape and size of the horns are impressive. I am looking forward to you seeing a lot of additional photos. Besides, it would also be interested to learn something about the size and composition of the Lippeaue herd - or of the three Taurus herds in the surroundings, Klostermersch, Disselmersch and another nearby Taurus site. And what about Lamarck, is he still the breeding bull there as in 2013? - to me he looked like the most impressive, aurochslike bull I have ever seen a foto from.

  6. Hello Daniel Foidl,

    I'm very interested in back breeding and I'm thankful that you provide the public with so much information. I by myself often visit the Taurus cattle at the Schmidtenhöhe although I'm a little disappointed because in my opinion the new breeding bull is not that aurochs-like as the bull used before.
    I'm very interested in the Taurus cattle from the Lippeaue and I look forward to read your next post.
