Cattle on the alp


Why are the cattle on the alp? In this way, fodder for the winter can be saved in the valley, and the farmer can keep more livestock. In addition, the stay on the alp is good for the health of the cattle: alpine cattle are more robust and less susceptible to disease. In the past, alpine pastures were even more important for agriculture than they are today.
