Switzerland is a country crazy about cows

There are songs about cows, there are special words for speaking to cows, and there are Swiss artists who have based their careers on painting cows. There are cow beauty contests, and cow parades, the wonderful annual desalpe, when the cows, bedecked with flowers and ribbons, come down from the higher pastures for the winter.

And Switzerland's gorgeous cows are indeed part of the the magic of the landscape.

So naturally there are also websites dedicated to these queens of the alpine pastures.

Here are some of best. Happy grazing!

All about cows. Has an english version as well.

Lyoba (le Ranz des Vaches)
Words to the famous Swiss romantique song about cowherds. The song that is guaranteed to make a true Swiss cry.
