Do's and dont's when walking in fields containing cattle

Some information supplied by the Chief Excutive of the Ramblers who offers the following advice when walking in a field with calves
Do Don't
Try not to get between cows and their calves Don't hang on to your dog,if you are threatened by animals,let it go as the cow will chase after that.
Be prepared for cattle to ract to your presence, especially if you have a dog Don't put yourself at risk. Find another way round the cows and rejion the footpath as soon as possible.
Move quickly and quietly, and if possible walk around them Don't panic! Most cows will stop before they reach you. if they follow just walk on quietly
Keep your dogs close and under proper control Don't forget to report any problems to the highway authority
