Grand Combat des Génissons / Niouc

Wrestling of cows in Niouc

Grand Combat des Génissons

About thirty heifers are expected this year and the fights will be lively and animated. The candor and the ardor of the heifers incite them to give themselves without calculation against their adversaries and the competitors who refuse to fight are few.

All the registered heifers come from stables in the Val d'Anniviers, the Sierroise region and the Upper Valais. Most of the breeders are regulars who are delighted each year to spend a convivial day while measuring the fighting values of their youngest animals.

The whole village of Niouc is mobilized to welcome the numerous spectators. Parking spaces are provided near the arena, the postal bus stops, on request, not far from the arena and the most intrepid can even get to the site by taking the old road to Anniviers.
