Elsy Menko – Country – Landscape
This characteristic Dutch meadow landscape with cows is inextricably linked to the image of the country. These cows are the lucky ones, they get to be outside. 31% of the approximately 3 million cows in Holland stay inside stables the whole year and this percentage is on the rise. The demand for dairy products keeps growing and less pasture is available for an ever increasing number of cows. One of my memories from childhood is meadows full of cows. I truly hope that in the future their presence will not disappear from the landscape altogether.
