A campino is a cattle herder in the Portuguese region of Ribatejo.

Campinos work on horse-back, using a long pole (a pampilho or lance) to manage and direct the herd. They are also known for their distinctive attire, which consists of a green and red stocking cap with a tassel, white shirt with full sleeves, red vest, short dark trousers and white stockings.
