Department 56 Alpine Cowbell Forge - Item 6005374 - From Alpine Village Lit buildings & Accessories collection - New for 2020. Essentially, the purpose of the cow bell is to assist the rancher or herder in locating the cows while they are out grazing. Traditions include everything from the spring parade - when, after the snowmelt, cows filled the village streets with the sound of ringing bells while leaving to graze the high mountain pastures - to letting the best milking cows wear the largest bells, a sign of honor. Today, new traditions have formed as we hear the bells rung by fans to encourage athletes in some of the largest international sporting events.
