The Missouri Horse Council maintains that horses are livestock and “supports the legal definition of all domesticated equines to remain as livestock and opposes the current social trend of referring to them as pets or companion animals.” This is a stance taken by many similar associations in the United States and Canada. Those who make their living as trainers, breeders, dealers and running boarding stables and schools may lose the benefit of being an agricultural endeavor if a horse were regarded solely as a companion animal.
A good deal of research into equine diseases, vaccines and husbandry is government funded. Husbandry and humane treatment laws might not apply if horses were designated companion animals.
Many states are passing limited liability laws, which protect livestock owners and livestock event organizers (like cattle and horse shows) from lawsuits from anyone who is injured by a potentially large and dangerous animal such as a cattle-beast or horse. Considering that most of us do regard our horses not just as companions, but family members, our ultimate goal should be the best possible care, in addition to protecting ourselves.
You can discover and learn what life is like on the farm for sheep, pigs, cows, goats, ducks, llamas, chickens and horses. Different breeds of sheep produce many kinds of wool fibers which are made into clothing.

It will win in fight against a SHEEPDOG because it can just lunge at it and do its top secret sumo wrestler move so it can even beat 5 sheepdogs. I love showing hogs in fairs.
My mum really wants a goat on a farm when we move because we live in Cairns and there is not enough room in Cairns, so we will have to move if we wanted to... Anyway I think a goat is a perfect farm animal because you can milk and make cheese and make soap, so I think it's a perfect pet to have on a farm.
It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011. Rabbits are not very yummy, so I have no idea why people wish to raise them as farm animals.
Chickens are very useful, laying large quantities of eggs. Even if you don't want to eat your chickens, you can just buy some pretty one.
Chicken fertilizer is excellent for growing lettuce and cabbage. They can till gardens removing them of weeds and bugs.
They will eat most almost any leftover you don't want to help cut down on garbage. And if you are not one for slaughtering farm animals, they can make great (outdoor) pets even and can be used for show-birds.
They are cheap and guaranteed to provide you with eggs (and meat). They grow rapidly too and are extremely easy to care for and don't take up a lot of space at all.
I raised these and started my first business from selling chickens and their eggs. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.
I have loved them for a long time not because what they produce but because of their actions and their faces are just so cute. Sheep produce lamb, great for selling, and mutton.
They produce sweeter milk than cows or goats. Sheep are awesome there soft and cuddly and help people get to sleep there were so many times I had to count down from twenty sheep to get my children to sleep.
Sheep are so cute, the milk is so much better than cows or goats and much healthier then any other milk, and you can make the wool into lots of stuff. Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like candid in the genus Cans, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.
Strong, friendly and protectively protect horses and sheep from coyotes Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leonidas of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.
“I think that Rabbits shouldn't live on a farm because they are cute, funny, and furry. But of corset hey can also be harmful because if they have sharp teeth than they can bite you and if the bunny is in a bad mood than it might bite you and also you should never have a baby when there also is a rabbit at your house and plus if you have a gate in your backyard they might figure a way to get out.
So don't get a rabbit on your farm or in your house because they are very cute, furry, and funny but trust me don't get one. Here in Bolivia these are more popular than the common ones with longer ears.
Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem-solving.

Some people think their mean but can bond with their handlers like any animals. Thought they are tasty but are really mean and attack small children my little brother had to go to the hospital because of a Turkey.
His name was Jeffery, and when I would lay down in the grass to read my book, he would climb up on my back. One day a dog broke into the coop and attacked.
He was my little boy, and probably died fighting for the other birds. I have not personally tasted goose eggs yet though.
Llamas The llama is a domesticated South American came lid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era. My grandpa Ward owns a llama farm because he lives in Pennsylvania.
