The Pastoralists has adopted other means of grazing which is carrying their cattle to the valleys for transhumance during the dry season and back to the hills during the raining season. They also stock dry grass to feed weak animals during the dry season.

They also keep other small animals like sheep and goats and to a lesser extend chicken. The Pastoralists has also engaged in small scale farming and gardening.
