(1) Ron Turner, 55, from Long Marston, near York, has worked as a herdsman looking after dairy cattle for the last 40 years.(2) Indeed, there was little need for the vast majority of them, whether merchants, farmers, or herdsmen , to know how to read or write.(3) He was out here in the wilds initiating low-interest loans, ‘reasonable amounts’ for poor farmers and herdsmen to manage.(4) There are numerous pictures of cattle with their herdsmen .(5) When he visits farmers, ploughmen and herdsmen to offer advice on improving and increasing their yields, he secretly jots down their curses and swear words in a small notebook.(6) Snow 17-24 centimetres deep has slowed rescue efforts and made it difficult for local herdsmen to feed their animals.(7) In his three paintings of herdsmen and cattle at Dulwich, a moist swirl of twilight, suspended over the low horizon, permeates the mild marshy pastures and caresses the slack flanks of the grazing animals.(8) An indigenous nation of mountain herdsmen and farmers with their own language and clan-based society, the Chechens have lived in the Caucasus for thousands of years.(9) It is at this time that our farmers, growers, herdsmen and stockmen are really suffering the pressure of economic damage due to foot-and-mouth disease and other market factors.(10) The true citizens of Alin were mostly farmers and herdsmen .(11) If ever there is a place to grasp the climatic and environmental changes in China, it is not out on the vast plains, where herdsmen and farmers battle over dwindling water resources and tillable land.(12) It is a land of endless bush, villages, nomadic cattle herdsmen and subsistence farmers.(13) Traditionally, Eritreans lived rural lifestyles as farmers or nomadic herdsmen and women.(14) Small herds of sheep and cattle, with shouting herdsmen , making their slow way down the street to some butcher's or some House's private stable.(15) This has been the approach taken by slash and burn agricultural communities in the tropical forests, cattle herdsmen in regions of Africa, and many international timber companies.(16) Along the way he challenges traditional interpretations about the role and scope of southern herdsmen and their herds.
