Holy cow, the Belties are back!

Chris Molinaro applies bug repellant to the Belted Galloway cows.

Southborough – Spring is here and the Belted Galloways are back in the fields on Breakneck Hill Road. There is a new, rare addition to the group, a red Beltie calf – born to two black parents who must have each been carrying a red gene. The cows enjoy grazing along the grassy rolling hills and amongst the apple trees, basking in the sun and feasting on the lush grass.

Chris Molinaro, vice president of the Breakneck Hill Cow Fund, and caretaker of the Belties, applies liquid bug repellant to the cows – a new formula which turns purple when applied. Molinaro said that the repellant is “super helpful” and lets him see which cows he has covered and which he has missed.

This Belted Galloway, or “Oreo Cow,” is enjoying an afternoon grazing in the fields.
