"Whole eons of love will be necessary to recompense the animals for their services to us." With this quote from Christian Morgenstern, leading sustainability expert and organic entrepreneur Werner Lampert opens his illustrated book, The Cow: A Tribute, a project very dear to his heart. Lampert developed a passion for cattle from an early age. Again and again, he was drawn to the pastures of his native Austria to admire these dignified, gentle animals and their calming effect. With its rich photography, this evocative book pays tribute to the soulfulness of cattle and the special bond between man and cow, much threatened in our age of industrial-scale farming. Around the world, Lampert and his team of select photographers have tracked down the most beautiful, rare cattle, capturing them in their natural and often spectacular surroundings with empathy and respect. A touching testimony to a much-loved animal, the gorgeous images in The Cow: A Tribute are rounded out with profound, at times poetic, texts; informative facts and history about different cattle breeds; and entertaining anecdotes. AUTHOR: Werner Lampert is the leading sustainability expert in Austria. The organic pioneer has been working intensively in organic farming since the 1970s. Together with a team of experts, he specialises in the development, production, and marketing of sustainable organic products and consumer goods. He is also the author of three books and initiated the online magazine, Sustainability. Rethink.

Farming has been in John Connell's family for generations, but he never intended to follow in his father's footsteps. Until, one winter, he finds himself back on the farm and begins to learn the ways of the farmer and the way of the cows. Connell records the hypnotic rhythm of the farming day - cleaning the outhouses, milking the herd, tending to sickly lambs, helping the cows give birth. But alongside the routine events, there are the unforeseen moments when things go wrong: when a calf fails to thrive, when a sheep goes missing, when illness breaks out, when depression takes hold, when an argument erupts and things are said that cannot be unsaid. The Cow Book is the story of a calving season. It is also the story of the cow itself, from its domestication and worship as a God by the Ancient Egyptians to the modern practice of mechanized herds, via the figure of the cowboy, the destruction of the American buffalo, the demise of the aboriginal jackaroos and the consequences of BSE. And, above all, it is the story of Connell's life as a farmer, of his relationship with his birthplace of County Longford, with the community around the family farm, with the animals he tends, and with his father.
