During the dry season young unmarried men drive the cattle of different families to a region where there is more grass and water and build up a cattle camp. During the night the cattle are tied up in the camp. In the morning and in the evening the cows are milked, in the day-time the big cattle go out to the neighbouring grazing grounds. The dried cow-droppings are collected and used as fuel for the nightly fire.
