Sample text

For the foreseeable future, mining and herding will continue to overlap geographically across the Mongolian landscape. Difficult choices loom in the environmental, economic, and cultural spheres. The nutritious natural forage of the Gobi traditionally has supported all of Mongolia’s so-called five animals (tabun khoshighun mal )—sheep, goats, camel, horses, and cows (a category that includes yaks and khainag or yak-cow hybrids). Cows, however, have been and continue to be the least numerous of the five animals on account of the difficulty they encounter grazing in the short and sparse Gobi grasses.

It is not surprising that in this period of chaos, a Mongolian prince would turn to a new religion—Tibetan Buddhism—to bolster his prestige and to reunify the warring Mongolian factions. Buddhism: Its Impact upon Mongolian Society, Politics, Economy Altan Khan (1508–1582) had threatened the Ming Dynasty with several military raids, including one in 1550 in which his troops appeared below the walls of Beijing. In 1578, Altan Khan met with a Tibetan Buddhist patriarch in Köke-nuur and Altan’s conversion to Tibetan Buddhism was accompanied by the formal recognition of him as a reincarnation of the Yuan Mongolian ruler Khubilai Khan.

Cattle are ill suited to mountainous Gobi pasture, though yak do well. 20 Overall, Simukov in several of his field reports extolled the high quality of Gobi grasses as key to the abundance of both herd animals and wild animals in the Gobi. ”21 There seems to be a correlation between sandy soil and high-quality sheep meat (mutton). While traveling in Zavkhan Aimag in the summer of 2005, I spoke with the then governor of Telmen Sum, Dolgorzhav, who claimed that the sandy soil in his sum produced some of the finest-tasting mutton in all of Mongolia.
