A new lease of life for pastoralism

Published in La Vie in january 2020.

The mechanization of agriculture had wiped it out much of the land, leaving it to the mountainous regions. However, pastoralism has found a new lease of life in recent years. Shepherds and shepherdesses are now settling in the plains, demanding more sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture. Mylène Perelli is one of them. This young shepherdess of 32 years old left everything to launch out in an itinerant pastoralism on the banks of the Loire.
