Resum de la ponència

Sunday, October 18, residents Laia Llobera, Oscar S. Aranda, Irene Solà and Gabi Martínez went to visit the Toti Juanola's red sheep flock. We left their house, La Capellera, with the three dogs walking -currently, rather- a short while by road to a steep detour that goes into the forest above.

The entire route was an ascent, accompanied by 400 sheep, while Toti introduced us to his current livestock and pastoral activity in the mountains. According to Toti, in many kilometers around, only two shepherds are dedicated to organic farming. Arriving at the Plan Camallera, the sheep concentrated on a meadow and the group of hiker-shepherds (for a day) went up a few meters to camp on the grass with 360-degree views of the valleys. In Toti he explained that he spends many hours there, among other things, reading and sending tweets about the world of livestock and reading books, such as those by Laia and Irene, who he asked to have the copies he owned autographed.

After talking about the possibilities of making livestock actions visible, for example, with a future caravan, and establishing relations with the Black Caravan Association, of which Gabi is a member, there was a lively conversation about whether or not to introduce wolves to the area. Toti is radically opposed. Oscar found it difficult to follow Toti's closed accent and dedicated himself to taking pictures of the day. At dinner, he said it had been a memorable day
