All Cows wear bells on the Alps. by ludwigsdiana

All Cows wear bells on the Alps.

It is a wonderful sound as they are up and down feeding. Each bell somehow sounds different. It is also great when they take a rest, as there are so many cows and they can be quite noisy.
Goodness, me, I've seen hundreds of cattle, but never any with bells on.

Do you know the real reason they wear them? I've heard a few different ones and never been sure which is true :)

@koalagardens I think it is so that they can be found at herding time, those mountains are very high and steep. They are only out during the summer months.
