Lường Thị Nhương and her two children are collecting sugarcane to feed their buffaloes. Chiềng Lương commune has a large field of sugarcane so there is no shortage of fodder for the cattle in the dry season. A hard-working farmer who is willing to ferment the sugarcane tops will have enough fodder for her cattle throughout the year.

Now is not the season for harvesting sugarcane, but Nhương cut down the sugarcane to raise the level of her field because her farm is in low-lying land.
