Then, rain water was blocked to grow such crops as millet, sesame, gram seed, cotton tree, pigeon pea and groundnut were cultivated. Thus, it seemed to be subsistence type. The native raise livestock not for cultivation but for milk. The milch cow give milk and traditional snacks such as milk rice, milk cakes, sour milk and steamed banana, etc, are made and they sell them to their neighboring villages and Mandalay.
