       CowCam - The day of a cow

The camera got integrated into a cow bell. Cows are during the summer on higher elevation of the Alps in Switzerland. These places are called "Alm".

They are at least during the summer beautiful places. As we can see also cows are enjoying the views. The grass on a Alm consists also out of herbs, therefore the milk and cheese tastes much better than from regular grass.  

When the night breaks... it is time for... getting rid of the milk.

By end of the summer the cows are moved down into the valley. That is called Almabtrieb. This view is breathtaking but not in the same way as on the mountain. Until the winter comes the cows are held closely to the farm.

... and share their land with some other species like swiss buffalos... For more pictures visit
