How Carabao dominates the farmland?

Carabaos are doing a tremendous amount of work in the farmland of Philippines. As a result, the carabao is known as the Philippines’ national animal. They can be seen everywhere in the Philippines’ countryside; it is typically a farmer’s companion. The role of the carabao is incredibly hard. The buffalo is the village’s go-to helper for everything from field preparation to harvesting. Almost every family owns carabao as a sources of livelihood, for farming, or even for selling.

Carabao Role’s

Carabao frequently carries heavy goods into fields. Hauling picked coconuts, simply place a cart or sled “1Pababa” (in Bikol language) “1aKangga” (Waray) so that it can be pulled by a carabao. Specifically in locations where automobiles are unable to access.

When preparing a field, use a carabao to speed up the plowing of the soil. The plow is required to pull by carabao as the farmer maneuvers the plow’s handle ” 2Timon”. The plow must then travel through the soil again a few weeks later to split it up into smaller sections. -Stages of plowing:  first is “3Rangkada” the second is “2doble”.

The carabao also facilitates mobility. Aside from the horse or cow, this is their primary mode of transportation. They normally ride a carabao to the other mountainside or community.
