Herding

Perhaps a dumb question, but nothing I've read about seems to say much about the business of herding in the first place, and I don't want information about modern use of animals. Would a person herd all appropriate animals(sheep, cows) together at the same time? Would he do it himself, have his son do it, use a shepherd? Any general information about herding in any non-industrialized period or country would be helpful, especially if the culture in question is mostly pastoral.
