An man in China is claiming to be the world’s oldest herdsman – at 107 years-old.

Li Xicai, from mountainous Kuangshi village, Ankang city, has been herding animals all his life.

“He was born in 1900, and started herding for landlords, then for the village after the revolution, and now for his family,” says his youngest son, Li Zaiming.

He says he doesn’t want his father to herd anymore at his age, but his father says herding has become part of his life and he can’t break the habit.

These days Li Xicai still herds bulls in the Qinba mountains every day, reports Huashang Daily.
