Which Swiss canton has the most cows?
In total, Switzerland has 1.6 million cows or one in five people. The best canton in terms of cattle population is: Bern (320,000 cows)

With the arrival of summer (usually mid-June), the farmer straps elaborate ceremonial bells on his cows and takes them up to a hut at high elevations. The cows probably hate these big bells, which can cost upwards of $1,000 apiece—a big investment for a proud-yet-humble farmer. When the cows arrive at their summer home, the bells are hung under the eaves.

The cows stay at the alps for about 100 days.
