The Beloved Cattle

Milovaný skot

Franz Josef Kögel used to practice high-performance sports. However, it was not him, but his cattle that had to perform under the immense daily pressure to satisfy their farmer’s insatiable desire for a greater milk yield. Franz had to experience what many dairy farmers have not yet come to realize: in the end, high performance will not pay off, neither for the animals nor the people.
