Overall inflation is moderate and the terms of trade of pastoralists are improving. In August 2012, prices for animals have increased compared to July (sheep prices rose by 8% to 15% depending on the region). However, high prices for cereals, especially millet and sorghum prices, outbalanced the terms of trade. To cope with price increases, pastoralists consume more wheat, switching from millet and sorghum. Compared to July, the terms of trade of sheep against wheat increased by 5.8% in Boghe and 15% in Abdel Bagrou, and decreased by 7.14% in Magta Lahjar.
