The Herens cows – an ancient and traditional breed from Valais.

A robust and affectionate warrior – this black fighting cow is a symbol of Valais. Originally from the Herens valley, they can be admired in the alpine pastures on the procession up the mountain and on their descent at the end of summer or during traditional cow fighting which culminates in national finals in spring.
