Correctly assess the behaviour of grazing animals: Hikers are recommended to exercise caution when encountering grazing animals. In order to avoid potentially dangerous situations, certain guidelines should be followed and one should be aware of common behavioural patterns of grazing animals.
In the event of an encounter, most cows will initially stand still and focus on their objective. They raise and lower their head, go down on bended knee and sni (= smell intensely, as cattle have relatively poor eyesight). The animals then usually take a few, often slow, steps towards their goal, before setting off at a faster pace.
