Livestock

What are Livestock?

Livestock refers to one or more domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as food, fibre and labour. Livestock generally are raised for subsistence or for profit. Raising animals (animal husbandry) is an important component of modern agriculture. It has been practised in many cultures since the transition to farming from hunter-gather lifestyles.
