A Dairy Herd

 I photographed this dairy herd near Bossée in October because I liked the look of how big and solid the cows looked, and particularly because there was a mix of breeds, out in pasture.

I think the brown cow is a French Brown.

The herd grazing, mostly Holsteins, but at least two other breeds as well.

The cow looking at us in the middle is a Normande, very typical with her brown ears, around the nose and eyes and spotted body.
