We have two main groups of volunteers.
"Lookers" and "Moovers."
"Lookers" are placed on a rota and inspect the herd daily checking that they are all present and correct, have fresh water and that the electric fencing containing them is working. On average a looker is required to "look" once a month. Generally however Lookers regularly walk the common and check the herd even when they are not required to!
"Moovers" are responsible for relocating the herd when they are due to move to a new grazing area. This occurs about eight times a year; the time between moves is dependant on the size of the grazing paddocks and the grass available and involves erecting a new fenced enclosure and dismantling the old. This is a very social activity and is a great opportunity to meet other members.
