09/27 - Cattle Show in Urnaesch

Every year around the end of September the farmers bring a selected numbers of their cattle to a defined place in the middle of the village where they'll be presented. You can see that tradition in different places, this year I watched it in Urnaesch.

They guys normally wear their traditional dress, in most cases the cattle - which has been cleaned and curried before - also wears some special decoration.

After their arrival on the showplace the cattle will be fixed according to the different categories. Later the judges will rate them and the best will be decorated and honored. When the cattle's been brought back to the stable there's always a big party with singing and dancing...

I took some pix during the presentation of the cattle when it was brought to the showplace...
