Hay is getting scarce

The towering peaks of the Glarus Alps still hold a lot of snow. The Tschudi family on Alp Heuboden is eager to move, but the meadows are not quite ready yet. “The problem is that the hay gets scarcer and scarcer. And the cows are eager to leave the stables”, says Lydia Tschudi.

With hay getting scarce, the cows can’t wait to leave the stable.

But finally, the waiting has an end. After the second weekend in June the cows finally left their winter home.

The flowers (here the Enzian) show that the meadows are finally ready.
