10 for a safe holiday around cattle

Please note the following rules of conduct:

  1. Avoid contact with grazing animals. Do not feed the animals, maintain a safe distance at all times!
  2. Try not to be loud. Do not startle cattle!
  3. Mother cows protect their calves. Avoid cows with calves, especially if you have a dog with you!
  4. Always keep dogs under control and on a short leash. If it becomes clear that a cow is going to attack: Let your dog off the leash immediately!
  5. Do not stray from the path!
  6. If cattle block your path give them the widest berth you can!
  7. If a cow approaches you: stay calm, don't turn your back on the animal and give it a wide berth!
  8. At the first sign of the animals seeming unsettled, remain calm and leave the area quickly!
  9. Respect fences! If there is a gate, please use it an close it afterwards, then cross the meadow swiftly!
  10. Treat the people who work here, the contryside and the animals with respect!
