Strolling of the Heifers

Brattleboro, VT - Pamplona has the Running of the Bulls, Brattleboro has the Strolling of the Heifers. The Strolling of the Heifers is put on to educate the public on the importance of sustainable local agriculture and how we should preserve the local farming families. Through this event, which has been going on since 2002 money is raised to promote the importance of local agriculture and to give microloans to local farmers.

So as the say, On with the Show.


The heifers are on a stroll down the street, it looks like the one out front is no Moooood (I couldn't resist)for a stroll.


There goes Missy.



Members of the Windham COWnty Dairy Club stroll with their heifers which are sporting leis and name tags.

Two young ones, this girl was on a float with this young heifer.

I took quite a few photos so I will post more in the next few days...not just cows.
