Photographer's Note

Switzerland has been noted as a cheese producing country for many years, and in the summer many of the dairy herds are taken into the mountainous regions and are grazed on the abundant pastures and meadows that result from the heavy rainfall. Cheesemakers and caretakers of the cattle accompany the herds to the mountains during the summer months, but as fall approaches, the cattle are returned to the lower lands where they are stabled or housed for the winter.

The Brown Swiss originated on the slopes of the Alps in Switzerland; and because they were bred in this harsh climate, they are resistant to the heat, cold and many other common cattle problems. Normally large with large ears, they have a docile and kind nature, and can survive with very little care and attention.
