Kuchi cows

Guljan and her family have become semi-sedentary, with a permanent house in a village not far from the mountain. Undertaking shorter migrations to pasture has allowed them to keep cows. Other Kuchi farmers are buying up land for crop production. Some employ a shepherd to graze their sheep and are shifting to other occupations.
