Day 28 – EU Cow Parade

Another day, another meeting with EU officials. This time, it was at DG SANCO, the Commission department in charge of health and consumer affairs on the topic of eggs from caged hens. You can read Alyn’s press release about it here, which shows how successful the meeting was.

Interestingly, the DG SANCO building has a CowParade cow in it’s foyer. I’m not sure where it’s from, since Brussels has never had a cow parade. I suspect it was probably a gift to the Commission from one of the Member States, possibly to celebrate the appointment of a Commissioner or a Council Presidency.

Edinburgh had a CowParade a few years ago. One of the cows now lives in the playground of the school beside the Scottish Parliament, near the foot of the Royal Mile.
