Fight of the Queens of the Fair of the Valais

On Sunday, October 2, a fight will be organized in the amphitheater of Martigny by the syndicate of Champex d'Alesse within the framework of the Fair of Valais.

Once the valleys have been cleared of the last snow, the fever of the queen fights starts again. The fighting season starts at the end of March and ends in May with the National Final in Aproz. Each year, several thousand people attend these spectacular fights in an electric atmosphere. In June, the summer transhumance (Inalpe) takes place towards the alpine pastures where numerous fights also take place. In autumn, the Désalpe marks the return of the cattle to the stables on the plains.

This second qualifying fight for the National Final of the Hérens Breed 2023 will be organized in the amphitheater of Martigny on Sunday, October 2nd by the syndicate of Champex d’Alesse within the framework of the Fair of Valais. It will see a category of primiparous cows and three categories of cows separated according to their weight.
