I took the photo of these two cows because they are beautiful. They look fat and the skin colour is nice. They are eating straw from the rice field after harvest. Now, few people graze their cattle in the fields. They mainly confine their animals. Confinement is better than herding because it only requires grass cutting. Herding is more time consuming. It is easy to tell the animals raised by herding from the confined ones because they are skinny.
