Your cattle will always have access to pasture during the summer months when the weather conditions allow. Spring and autumn, the animals must have outdoor access. Being outside can be an exercise yard or other land that is suitable.

In winter, you keep birds indoors if kept in groups. For bulls over a year are given exemption from grazing on the Bulls have access to outdoor exercise yard.
