To most people, Switzerland means meadows of wild herbs, snow-capped mountains, and crystal-clear lakes.

The Bettmeralp is situated in the Swiss canton of Valais. This is where 15-year-old Alexander Eyholzer lives. During the summer holidays, he helps out around the farm and in the mountain cabin of his Uncle Stefan. But Alexander’s favorite chore of all is tending the family’s – very special – cows. The ancient Alpine Herens cows (“Eringer” in German) are one of the smallest cattle breeds in Europe. Alexander enters his cows in traditional cow fights. This time he has entered his cow “Bandid.” Will he win?
