A (very) short blog about cows

If you go for a walk in the Swiss countryside, there is no doubt that you will at some point hear the sound of bells. Mostly they belong to cows, which are kept in temporal meadows during the warmed months. Unlike Australia where most farms have a set area with fences, these meadows are often just surrounded by moveable electric fencing to keep the cows in. The bells are used so that the farmers can tell where they are.

Here is a selection of cow photographs I have taken in the last few months:
