This is a corn mill of the kind that is rarely used nowadays. People prefer milling machines. However, there is no electricity in Buôm Khoang village. Therefore, villagers still use this mill to grind corn for buffaloes, cows, pigs and chickens. Some households cook cornstarch with vegetables and banana stems to feed their pigs. Cornstarch fermented with grass and banana stems is used as fodder for pigs, geese and chickens. Farmers may use the fresh mixture to feed their animals.
