Boys eat sorghum stalks put out for the cattle at the house of Jamal Muhammed in the Fontanina area south of Kombulcha, Ethiopia.
Sorghum is a staple food for people and livestock alike here and the boys like it for the same reason the cows do: it is sweet to chew. Sorghum varieties with tall stalks are favored for the amount of forage they produce.
