Great- and interesting thread, Emma B!
Would you know any recording of the first song you mentioned?
Sian, are there any literature on the songs for cattle in the Welsh tradiiton? Or do you have any references to works where suchsongs are mentioned?
As far as I know "kulning" ("cattle call"), is mostly used in Swedish. The Norwegian term is "lokk".
In the great book, "The songs of Elizabeth Cronin", discussed in another thread, there is a song called "Raghd-sa ó thuaidh leat, a bhó", a song sung by a milking-woman, wishing the cow safe from any harm.
