Ariin-Ihaa Gachaa's herdsmen Bai Tie Zhuangs' are still herding.
Because of the implementation of the "sealing up mountains
and planting trees" policy, herdsmen of this area will be
soon relocated from their lands where they have lived as nomadic
people to Oboot New Immigrations Town. Locating on the hinterland
of the Great Hingaan Mountain southern foothill, Ulaan Mod
Sumu is being a target of the implementation of the "Ecological
Immigration and Help-the-Poor" project. 216 herdsmen households
are being planned to be relocated from the grassland to leave
5000 Mu land as "grass-and-forest-returning area".
