This information sheet provides advice about the hazards associated with keeping cattle, including bulls (uncastrated bovine animals of 10 months or over), in fields where the public has access in Scotland (a separate version is available for England and Wales).

It suggests reasonably practicable ways of controlling hazards for walkers.

Land managers should also consider risks to other rights of way users such as horse riders and cyclists.
