In 1954, the inhabitants of the Frisian capital Leeuwarden got a statue of a cow, which they called ús mem (our mother). Why do the Frisians call a cow 'our mother'?
And what is the relationship between our mother and our father (a statue of a count in the city centre)? Reimer Strikwerda is a historian who specializes in agriculture. Together with Klaas Zandberg from the Historical Centre Leeuwarden they shed their light on this intriguing question.
