Animal husbandry refers to the branch of agriculture that is concerned with the animals that are raised for milk, meat, fibre, and other products. These things are made possible as many of these animals could be tamed.
Animals serve different purposes in farming. These purposes are:
- Dairy animals,
- Poultry animals,
- Meat producing animals,
- Animals used for transportation, and
- Animals used to fertilize the soil.
Here are some pictures of these animals:

Farmers allow cattle to graze for their own food in fields of grass in a rotational basis. These animals spread their waste, fertilizing the field while they move. This is called intensive grazing.
