Animals are moved according to the seasons. In the summer cattle are taken up to the high alps to graze which allows hay to be grown on the flat land in the valley floor when the soils are at their deepest and most fertile. In winter the cattle return to the farms on the valley floor where they are kept in cattle sheds and fed the crops which were grown in the summer. Cable cars installed for tourism are now being used to transport milk Farmers also buy extra feed so that their cattle can stay on the valley floor all year long.
