"The Wodaabe are pastoral nomads who keep mahogany-coloured cattle. Their main interest is Zebu cattle. Cattle are kept for daily milk, and milk is the best food in this world, the Wodaabe say. They do not often kill a cow for meat, except on special occasions. Besides Zebu cattle, the Wodaabe keep sheep, goats, donkeys and camels. only some Wodaabe own camels (riding camels and transport camels). They are the rich among the Wodaabe and those who live near the Sahara, close to the Tuaregs." [Bovin M., 2001: Nomads Who Cultivate Beauty. Nordiska afrikainstitutet].
