Till the Cows Come Home...

Till the Cows Come Home...

As in years past, this is the time of year when the cattle return to graze in Ramat Hanadiv's Nature Park. In addition to their contributions to the landscape and vegetation, the cows help prevent wildfires. The lush flowering landscape that greets us today will soon turn into sere fields of dry weeds. By the end of the spring, these weeds are liable to catch fire easily and spread quickly into dangerous bushfires. The grazing of the cattle in early spring eliminates a lot of the greenery on the ground, significantly reducing the amount of flammable vegetation that would otherwise accumulate. By thinning out thickets and groves, the cows' grazing also makes more room for annual plants, increasing the range of plants that can grow there.

Electric fences keep the cattle within certain areas designated for grazing. Though touching the fences is not dangerous, it is seriously uncomfortable ﹘ so please stay at a distance and be sure to keep children away from them!

The cattle herd will remain at Ramat Hanadiv until it's eaten enough greenery to prevent the danger of summer wildfires. Based on previous experience, that will probably take until the end of May or the beginning of June.

To the hiking public: Despite their size, the cows are not dangerous to people and generally prefer to have no contact with us. The public is kindly requested to stay on the trails and use the pedestrian crossings, to close any cattle fences they've opened, and not to jump over the fences.
