GUALFIN, Argentina – The herd first appeared as a cloud of dust coming from the northwest.
It would take another two hours for us to hear the cows mooing and the gauchos yipping and yelling.
In the tumult of the roundup, cows are separated from the calves. Both call out desperately until they are reunited.
Then they moo for other reasons – probably a general disgust with having been whipped by the gauchos and harassed by their dogs for the past three or four hours.
