Farm Animals

Farm animals are animals that are domesticated for agricultural purposes. Raised for a variety of purposes serving human demands, farm animals are commonly used for commodities such as meat, leather, wool, and the production of milk, eggs, and other natural products. Keeping livestock has been a human activity across the world since humans transitioned to farming from hunter-gatherer lifestyles. Farm animals can be differentiated by dairy animals, poultry animals, and transportation animals.
