Moss beef

Moss beef. Fodder as well as space in croft or byre was in short supply on the peatland smallholdings over winter. Of the cattle that had grazed the moor all summer few were kept, most were either driven to the great cattle markets at Crieff or Falkirk or slaughtered. Cattle still graze Flanders Moss and their meat can be bought at the local farm shop.DAA6F882-0ABE-4EEA-871F-6DA0D8B9931B
