Mahmud is an honest and decent man of 41. He is married with two beautiful children.

Throughout his life, Mahmud has been involved in animal husbandry. He knows very well all the advantages of this business. At home, he has five heads of cattle and two dairy cows. The dairy cows are cared for by his wife. She feeds and milks them. Every day, they get 10 liters of milk and Mahmud's wife produces yogurt products and sells them to acquaintances and neighbors. Additionally, Mahmud is engaged in mid-sized village farming on "dekhan" farms. But the main source of income is fattening cattle.

About MDO Arvand
