Sheena, the Champion Cow

champion_sheena

The month of May is usually a busy month for Mallorcan villages. It is the time of the Fires, the Fires del Maig.

The weekend before last, the pueblos of Selva, Salines and Inca celebrated their May Fair. Yesterday it was time for the Fira del Maig in the pueblos of Campos del Port, Campanet, Felanitx, Sóller and Son Carrió.

Campos del Port combined its Fira del Maig with the XXXI Concurs Morfològic Nacional de Ramat Boví-Frisó, the National Championship for Friesian Cows. Sheena, the four and a half year old prime cow shown here, was crowned the lucky Champion Queen of Cows. Son Suau from Manacor are her breeders. Enhorabuena. Campos also celebrated the XVI Exposició Monogràfica del Ca de Bestiar. I must admit that I was so busy with the cows that I was too late to see the overall winning dog; I only met the winner of the second prize in the Intermediate category (dogs from 15 to 24 months), a beautiful dog from Cala d’Or.

The photo was taken in Campos del Port, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 10th, 2009. The time was 13:49:59.
