Sheep and cattle are shepherded at Altay grassland during the seasonal livestock migration on Sep. 22, 2011 in Altay, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China. Many herders follow a traditional transhumant way of life, moving their livestock to the cooler highland areas in spring and summer seasons, and then towards the warmer lowlands in the winter.
