The region of Rabat, around the capital city, like the whole northern area of Morocco’s Atlantic coast, enjoys relatively abundant precipitation (as much as 300 inches, or 800 mm, per year). In this part of the country the November and March rains feed the rivers and cause major flooding. However, from May onward a warm, dry, southeast wind, the chergui, gradually dries out the riverbeds. The beds become swampy and are covered with a short-lived carpet of grasses and flowers, which attract a few cows that have drifted away from neighboring herds searching for food. Cattle-rearing, made up largely of local breeds raised for both their milk and their meat, is relatively small-scale in Morocco, with just 2.6 million head. As in many Mediterranean countries, the populations of goat (5.2 million) and sheep (16.7 million) are far greater.
