Werner Lampert has worked in organic farming since the 1970s, and is now the leading sustainability expert in Austria. Through stunning snapshots and detailed breed information, his new book, The Cow: A Tribute (teNeues, 2019), pays homage to the animals Lampert has long admired. Ahead, you’ll find some of our favorite photographs from the book—vivid pictures of rare cattle from India, Colombia, and beyond.

Pustertaler Sprinzen: South Tirol, Italy: tempermental, robust, frugal eater
Modicana: Italy: undemanding and tolerant of hot, dry summers
