15Th Grand Festival of the return from the pastures
Summer pasturing is over and it's time to return to the villages in the valleys. Tonadico and Siror, in collaboration with Transacqua, Fiera di Primiero, Mezzano and Imèr, are preparing a grand festival to celebrate the return of the cows to Primiero after spending summer on the malgas, the high mountain pastures.
The long period (three to four months) spent on the mountain malgas pasturing on lush grass and aromatic plants is coming to an end and as the days turn cold, herds of dairy cows, beef cattle, veal calves and horses return to the villages and the barns of their respective owners.
"Desmontegada" Sunday is the culmination of 10 days of festivities celebrating cattle rearing and dairy produce including a sumptuous line-up of gastronomic delights.
