Batailles de tchevre

The Contest for the Tchambis

 

The success and enthusiasm that characterises the Bataille de Reines has encouraged the farmers who breed goats ("tchevre" in patois, the dialect in Valle d'Aosta) to follow the same path. So, in 1981, a parallel event was organised: the Bataille de Tchevre, a festive time, where the animals confront each other in a bloodless battles.

The goats are also split into categories according to their weight and the organisation of the combats is just the same as for the "reine". The winners are awarded the "tchambis", collars made with maple or walnut wood, which are hand-carved and equipped with a traditional bell.
