Cattle work

Cattle and sheep were the main means of nourishment of the peasant family: milk was supplied twice a day and it was important both for domestic use and for the production of butter and cheese. Cattle and sheep also provided the family with meat, with wool to make clothes and last but not least with manure for the fields. Goats also supplied the leather to make the wineskin, which was used to carry wine. In addition to cattle, sheep and goats, the peasant family usually kept poultry and a pig for fattening..
