On the 30th of April and on the 1st of May 2016, the best cows of the Hérens breed combat in the Aproz arena !
Hérens cows instinctively fight in order to set the hierarchy within the herd. This behaviour can be seen during the summer months on the mountain pastures, but also during organised cow fighting events.
Eliminatory legs are organised in autumn and in spring in various regions in the Valais. The best cows are qualified for the national grand final, which takes place every year in May in Aproz (Nendaz).
This event has become an event not-to-be-missed in the Valais. It represents a true link between the farmers and the public, and is always attended in great numbers.
Tension, suspense, emotion,… the cow fighting national final offers a unique show which attracts more and more amateurs, well beyond the Valais’ boundaries.
