As title, what’d you call a person raise those animals?
I know that you call the
one cares for cows is cowboy;cowherd
one cares for sheeps is sheepman; shepherd
for pigs is swineherd, etc
but how you call that man if he takes care for buffalos, ducks, chickens ?
Please help me with this.
For buffalo or other large animals like ostriches or antelope, I would use the term “rancher”. For ducks and chickens, I would say “farmer”.
uhm, but it’s not like other people will clearly know what that man does
do you think adding buffalo rancher and duck farmer will be OK?
True, we don’t have a word that specifically means someone who takes care of buffalo or who takes care of chickens. Buffalo rancher and duck farmer sound good to me. One other note: a shepherd or cowboy often does not own the animals or land, but a rancher or farmer does.
A person who raises duck is a poultryman and when he has raised a duck it can be made into “poulterer pie” Shepherds pie made with duck.
