Photos of cows, and related bovine animals (e.g. calves, oxes, bulls, water buffaloes, yacks).
I have not included photos of butchered cows (body-parts and meat, i.e. beef). Those can be seen in my Meat Markets series.
Photos of cattle markets where live animals are being sold by farmers. Some photos of farmers going to those markets.
Photos taken in India and other Asian countries.
Some photos were taken at the bull market of Meo-Vac, a tribal region in the North of Vietnam.
Most photos were taken at a small cattle market I stumbled upon on the road near Mahashunda village in West Bengal (India). All the local farmers were there to buy and sell livestock (often young animals). Most farmers were Indian Muslims.
Photos from of my 30-day trip around Vietnam in November 2005.
