Uschi, a Bavarian Cowgirl

Authors: Matti Bauer. Human interest - BR - 2004 - 45 min

Uschi is in her late twenties and wants to become a farmer. This summer, like those past, the pretty young woman is drawn to the loneliness of a pasture high above Lake Tegern where she will spend four months tending a herd of 30 cows and calves, making butter and cheese and preparing for her agricultural exams. She loves the adventurous mixture of responsibility and freedom inherent in being a shepherd, and she plans to enjoy that freedom one last time before taking over her parents' farm next year - even if they think she should find a husband first.
