Originally, a pastoral society, the Fulani's lives revolve around the needs of their cattle. They wonder in nomadic groups, making temporary camps. Some of their diary products are are exchanged at markets for cereal foods. In Nigeria, the Fulani can be seen trekking through different states and cities, so that their cattle can graze.
