The Hérens cows

The Herens cows are found throughout the Valais but the Val d'Hérens is their true home.

The Hérens cows found in this valley are a unique breed known for their wild temperament.  Their beauty and strong character have won the loyalty of the Valaisan people.

The Hérens cows are so highly regarded that they can truly be said to have helped shape both the countryside and the way of life in the region.

Come and see the traditional cow fighting organized at the beginning of May and during the numerous inalps  from  the middle of June.

The cows fight to select a queen of the herd, and these “combats” are the focus of lively festivals.
