Conservation grazing

Around Anglesey there are a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI's) and some are grazed. Grazing animals help to manage particular sites in the most effective and natural way possible. The choice of livestock used for conservation grazing is very important. Differences in feeding preferences, physiology and behaviour mean that different animals and breeds are needed to manage different habitats. Ponies preferentially graze grasses and generally avoid eating flowering plants, allowing them to thrive and multiply.
