The soil is mostly quite deep. But there is this one cliff that shows rocks ....

Last I checked, the last auroch was a female that died in the 1600s in Poland. Good luck with your search, David.

As to bison, I think they are a great idea, especially as the herd can increase in size by a third in a good year, and with management, most years can be made good years.

Those look like some happy livestock. With that outcropping, is there much loose stone available for construction materials?

Yes I know about the auroch being extinct although Hitlers "scientists" did try to recreate some by combining various ancient breeds. The result was very dissapointing not surprizingly .
European Bison are still round but very rare.
Have seen Chillingham cattle in the wild And they looked like they knew why horns are pointy

I would guess that about 10% is on hill or cliff or really steep stuff.

Just opportunities for terracing and gravity-fed natural water retention. Looks beautiful. Looking forward to more.
