With a significantly thicker hide than other breeds and two coats (one downy and close to the skin and one long, thick and well oiled to shed the rain and snow), they can withstand blizzard conditions and temperatures as low as -40 degrees C. These cattle are extremely efficient foragers and will browse happily on vegetation that other breeds would ignore, making them well suited to pasturing. They are very independent, gentle and thrive in small herds. Linda, wife in the husband and wife team, told me today each has a personality all its' own and there is a pecking order to the fold.
