A little hike in the land of cows? It is in the north of the Pays Voironnais that you will meet them most easily. The farms scattered throughout the mountains and valleys raise cows of various breeds there, both for milk and meat.

You will discover Montbeliardes (red piebald dress and big eyes!) or Prim'Hosltein (black and white dress) for milk. The lucky ones will even be able to see a few French Simmentals (rather light red piebald dress) ...
For meat, the famous Charolais (all white) or even Limousines (bright wheaten dresses) feast on natural grass from spring to autumn.
The little extra: the beautiful Vivier pond.

Good discoveries!
