Wrong way round, I'm afraid. Cain was a farmer and Abel was a shepherd. Abel sacrificed lambs from his flock which pleased God, but Cain only had vegetables to offer and god was displeased. Cain was so upset at what he felt was unfair treatment that he quarrelled with Abel and killed him.

Never trust a farmer!
