Cattle menThrough the next ten years, the Acadians made trades to work in Cattle stock and to receive some of the stock in return for their work. This deal allowed the Acadians to learn the layout of the land, learn how to farm on it, and also how to raise livestock, on a mostly bayou area. After 10-15 years of learning to work the land with both farming and livestock raising, the Acadians grew into two strong sub-communities. The sub-communities both sold their wares to New Orleans and they were the Attakapas Acadians, who sold cattle, and the River Acadians, who sold their farm produce.
