FARM animals are animals raised or kept primarily for consumption, to generate income or help with some farm operations. Their waste can also fertilize the soil.
The dangerous thing about these animals is that they are destructive because they eat or attack crops, food, livestocks among others. Examples include: goats, sheep, cattle, cows, camels, horses, donkeys, pigs, chickens, Turkeys, ducks, hogs to mention but a few.
Farm animals are useful to the farmlands as well to human beings. For instance; chickens provide eggs for breakfast and cooking. They also provide meat. Cattle produce milk for the family to drink and the farmers to sell. They as well serve as meat to human beings. They are also used to produce leather.
