Livestock

Livestock are domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as meat, milk, leather, and wool. The term is often used to refer solely to those raised for food, and sometimes only farmed ruminants, such as cattle and goats. In recent years, some organizations have also raised livestock to promote the survival of rare breeds. The breeding, maintenance, and slaughter of these animals, known as animal husbandry, is a component of modern agriculture that has been practiced in many cultures since humanity's transition to farming from hunter-gatherer lifestyles.

Who knew chickens could be so fun! Chasing them were the best part, and requires a lot of running. I admit I was a bit scared on putting a chicken on my head, but I am glad that I did it!
