Portuguese to English translations [PRO]
Agriculture / Regionalismo Nortenho
Portuguese term or phrase: Aperuar
'Aperuar as vacas'.

Penso que se trata de andar de roda das vacas ao leva-las para a sertada de forma a tomar conta delas. No entanto, foi-me dito por uma especialista em regionalismos do Norte de Portugal que este termo tambem podera significar cortar as pontas dos cornos as vacas de forma a que nao causem estragos.

Isto estara correcto?

Obrigado,

Joao
