From time immemorial there are countless tales of the sacred and symbolic relationship we share with cows. Rock paintings in Tassili n’Ajjer are a reminder of the origins of domestication and the ancient ties that men have forged with animals. In France’s Aubrac Mountains we meet cows that still have names. But the food processing industry is divorcing us from nature, and the urgent question is how we can re-establish our relationship with the larger community of living creatures. The proximity or distance between humans and animals invites us to ponder the fate of cattle as a means of studying the destiny of mankind.
