Vachement Beau!

September 28, 2012

An unprecedented alliance between the arts and Charlevoix's agricultural heritage!

To promote the Canadian Cow, an endangered breed historically connected to Charlevoix County, an artist painter will realize a spectacular work on a life-sized fiberglass replica of the Canadian Cow.

In cooperation with l’Association de mise en valeur des bovins de race canadienne dans Charlevoix and la Laiterie Charlevoix.

A word from Fabienne Thibeault
Honorary Sponsor of the ''Association de la mise en valeur du Bovin Canadien dans Charlevoix''
Officer, French Order of Agricultural Merit
Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur
Ambassadress of the Canadienne Cattle breed

This fall, the Canadian Cow takes on an autumn look, colourfully dressed up by Charlevoix painters.

Tremendous idea and noble symbol! She's right at home in a cultural event with the size and importance of Rêves d'automne. It's only the beginning on the agricultural scene for the Star of our local Charlevoix products.

She has taken off. Her Milky Way is all set up: in a loving gesture, her motherly love and milk give us a taste of eternity.
