Île du Moine community pasture

Barge used to carry livestock to the community pasture on Île du Moine.

Today, there are no more sheep on the pastures of Île du Moine. The island is used exclusively to pasture heifers (young cows that have not yet calved). Farmers bring their livestock to the island in the spring on a barge, and collect them again in the fall.
