Mohammed Adam Ismail, 38 years old, originally from Tulus (South Darfur) was born in El Fasher. His family has been raising cows and producing milk since 1943, when his grandfather bought his first cows. Most of Mohammed’s 70 cows
are outside the camp, in pastures. He only keeps the calves and a few cows that produce milk within Abu Shouk. He lost 36 cows during the draught in 2009, but Abu Shouk and his cows remain his best source of income, about 100 SDG per day.
