Fighting cows – dated back to Egyptian BC times – throughout the summer across the Alps

Across Switzerland, Italy and France the fighting cows have been the beloved “hobby” for those Alpine farmers. Cows are loved, caressed and bred for fighting from the Val d’Herens stock. They are considered one of the oldest animals know to man, emanating from antiquity, Egypt. The fights happen throughout the summer. National and Country champions emerge, in the different categories. How do they “win”? A lot of head butting with the weaker animal turning away.
