Farm Animals

Animals that live on a farm are usually kept there for their produce, labor, or meat. For centuries the relationship between man and certain animals have developed in such a way that the former takes care of the animals throughout its life, and in return takes the produce, for example, milk from cattle, and eggs from poultry.
