Late May is kind of slow up there. Snow is too far gone for the skiers, and the trails are still partly blocked by snow (unless it has been a year with poor snowfall) and the snow melt makes the trails rather muddy.
Not sure, but I expect that the cows are still in their barns at that time and altitude. At lower altitudes, such as near Luzern and Bern or along the main line to Geneva, you have a better chance to see the cows out in the fields.
The best time to see the cows with the rally large bells is when they ascend to or descend from their summer pastures.
Google Alpaufzug and Alpabzug to see what you can find.
