Long Description:
DE: Das Sieglarer Wahrzeichen „Lööre Oohs“, das die Gemeinschaft von Mensch und Tier symbolisieren soll. Die Sieglarer Ochsen wurden in einer Urkunde von 1395 das erste Mal erwähnt. Zu dieser Zeit entwickelte sich Sieglar zum Mittelpunkt der Stier-und Ochsenzucht im Amt Löwenberg und es entstand ein gewisser Wohlstand, da Sieglar eine bedeutende Stellung als Vogtei und Kirchspiel erhielt. Es gab zwei Zuchthöfe für Ochsen sowie andere Schlacht-und Arbeitstiere: den Schirmhof und den Drachenfelser Hof.

EN: EN: The Sieglar landmark "Lööre Oohs", which is to symbolize the communion of man and beast. The Sieglar ox was mentioned for the first time in a document of 1395. At this time, Sieglar developed into the center of bull and ox-breeding in Amt Löwenberg, and a certain prosperity arose, since Sieglar was given an important position as vogt and parishioner. There were two bullfolds for oxen, as well as other slaughter and working animals: the umbrella yard and the Drachenfelser Hof.
