The Last Food of England
Time to sit down: British White cattle are related to the other park breeds, and a former status symbol (minus horns) dispersed from Whalley, Lancashire, in 1697. They might have died out, but found long term homes in the east of England during the eighteenth century, and later in Sussex. A number of these cattle were shipped to America during the war, and on government orders, in order to protect their bloodlines. The breed today has dedicated long term admirers, and gained a commercial value. You can buy the beef.
