A Working Day Cattle Herder, Cameroon – Free Ebook

(I don’t understand at all) The first thing I do every morning is to pray; I will say hello to my wife later. Then, go and see if the livestock is okay; count the cows; count the sheep ; count the chickens again, and start milking. This is a typical Mboro cow. They have long horns, they’re about the same height, they’re almost all brown, and they’re very picky about the grass they eat. They don’t eat dirty grass, they like to eat fresh and clean grass, and after milking, they go to pasture, feed the chickens, feed the sheep, and then go to say hello to the father who lives nearby. I am Mbroro Fulani I knew my parents were Mbroros when I was a child. My grandfather passed the cow to my father, and then to me, and I went on to raise the cow. When the cows are fat, I will drive them to the river to drink. The mountains here are endless, but only since the farmers encroached on the land, we have very little land left for grazing, the problem is… I can’t make much money and can’t feed my family. Once things get better, I can afford the necessities and take care of my home. Now, grazing here actually faces many challenges. Farmers often invade our pastures and grow crops without government authorization. This will cause conflict. Another conflict is that many farmers do not take good care of their crops. When grazing, cattle destroy crops. This is also a problem. If you let your cattle run around, the cattle are likely to be cut off by farmers, which is why we herdsmen always follow our cattle. Even if it rains, you have to follow. I have a little wish for my home that my children can study and then find a job. This way, the boss can go to work, and even if I get old, he can still take care of his younger siblings.
