Mongolian ethnic group
The Mongolian ethnic group, inhabiting Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Heilongjiang and Hebei, lives on vast grasslands. Therefore, stockbreeding plays a major role in their development, together with agriculture, handicrafts, and other processing industries. Milk and meat is their daily staple food and drink.
