Top Ten Farm Animals

Top Ten Animals That are Commonly Found On A Traditional Farm.

The Top Ten

1 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

HORSES ARE THE BEST! You can train them and it is like the are apart of you! Anyway if you are going to be having a garden... Well when the horse poops, it's great menuwer!

I do not know what I would do without horses in my life

Horses are intellegent creatures. They are great companions for all ages and are useful as work animals. They are graceful and beautiful. They are so much fun to ride. Understanding when you're sad and happy when your happy with them. Awesome, they are!


2 Cow Cow Cattle—colloquially cows—are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos taurus.

Cows are units

Have 72 head of cattle

cow is the best best best best farm animal in the world.

Cows are by far the best we have a sweet little jersy and she is the cutest thing you could ever see. Going to calve in may and is just like a big puppy follows me around the barn and dances around for her grain so cute

3 Goat Goat The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.

Tyga has sex with them. - AlphaQ

Goats are a very versatile animal as well, you get milk, you can make anything that you would with cows milk. Drink it, make cheese, make soap.

The goat is obviously the best farm animal. He is cute, furry, likes to be pet, and likes people to feed him. Those other ones mostly just stand there being animals. Goats have personality! - RamonTheGoat

Goats are so cute they rub up against you and ccome in all sizes

4 Pig Pig A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar, along with other species; related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog.

This is by far the best animal on this farm. It will win in fight against a SHEEPDOG because it can just lunge at it and do its top secret sumo wrestler move so it can even beat 5 sheepdogs. This is the most underrated animal, even though it is at 3! GO PIGS!


Pigs are smart, clean (in comparison to other farm animals), and self sufficient.

I think pigs (especially mini pigs) are by far the best and cutest farm animal!

5 Chicken Chicken The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011.

They make awesome noises and I heard that most chickens can play the piano breh!

How is this behind pig... - NoChickenSoup

Chickens should be first! They can be used for more then any other farm animal. You can eat their eggs and their meat. You can use their feathers. Chicken fertilizer is excellent for growing lettuce and cabbage. They can till gardens removing them of weeds and bugs. They will eat most almost any leftover you don't want to help cut down on garbage. And if you are not one for slaughtering farm animals, they can make great (outdoor) pets even and can be used for show-birds. - Ethlin

People! Random strangers! Farm animals are NOT PETS. They are for the humans' uses. Not cuteness. Rabbits are not very yummy, so I have no idea why people wish to raise them as farm animals. Horses, pigs, cows and goats I understand. For food and riding. Yes, but not for 'rubbing against your leg'. Just go visit some 'top ten pets' and vote for pigs or sheep there. Chickens are very useful, laying large quantities of eggs. The meat is also very good. There are many different types of chickens, used for different ways. Even if you don't want to eat your chickens, you can just buy some pretty one.

6 Sheep Sheep The sheep is a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.

Sheep produce lamb, great for selling, and mutton. They produce sweeter milk than cows or goats. They provide wool, and lanolin oil. They are excellent grazers, and provide manure.


Sheep are very cute animals. I have loved them for a long time not because what they produce but because of their actions and their faces are just so cute. I think they are the cutest animals in the world.

If you have a sheep, you get to have their wool, they also give you their milk and you can eat them too! Very good animal to have!

7 Donkey Donkey The donkey or ass is a domesticated member of the horse family, Equidae. The wild ancestor of the donkey is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years.

Strong, friendly and protective
They protect horses and sheep from coyotes

I have a donkey and he is the friendliest, most kind, and loving donkey ever. they are also hard workers and they are very intelligent

I love donkeys, I have one. it can kick any intruder in the face.

Donkeys are tough and friendly. Good animals to keep

8 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

They are an animal and deserve to be on a farm

Rabits should not be a farm animal because they are pets for kids that don't live on farms

there cute

Rabbits are not really farm animals. In fact, they're more like anti-farm animals being they love eating all your crops. - KeyboardHero

9 Turkey

Who ever said that they are only good for they're meat can go eat a turd and they can be pets too dumbass

Good bird

Turkeys are the best! Somw people think their mean but can bond with there handlers like any animals. I strongly suggest getting Turkey also because of their feathers with are nice to craft with and you'll never have to buy a Turkey again.

Thought they are tasty but are really mean and attack small children my little brother had to go to the hospital because of a Turkey.

10 Dog

That are all ways there for you and mans best friend proven fact.

I love dogs so so much

Sheepdogs are the best you can train them to tend to sheep be house train and do much more. Also they are very loyal. They could also be a hard working guard dog

Otherwise known as: Border Collie (most of the time :3) these dogs are amazing! So smart and controlling with the sheep. This makes the work for the farmer much easier :) If you ever see a sheepdog round up some sheep, you'd see it is very impressive. - CloudofMercury


The Contenders

11 Cat

So useful.

You gonna start a farm get yourself a barn cat

Barn cats help grow the harvest crops of autumn by catching and devouring pests like rats and harvest mice who naw at the seeds and plants that have grown through the summer.

Why are silly horses on the top? They are beautiful and you can ride them but that's pretty much it. Barn cats literally save the barn by eating all the pesky rats!

12 Pony Pony

Iv'e got my own pony called Naz

Yes, they are smaller than horses. But consider the fact they are STRONGER than horses. If you get an old well bonded horse from a breeder they are more "perfect for kids".

They are the same as a horse but smaller so they are better for children.

Because the are so pretty

13 Duck Duck Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese.

Ducks are the best animal. They are one of the only animals that live on land, water, and air.

Ducks are adorable especially baby ducklings they are so fluffy

I have 6 ducks, 3 Pekin and 3 Buff Orpington. I've never thought that ducks could be so sweet! They are a lot of fun for all ages, amazing to watch them grow, and lay eggs that are known to taste great in pastries! They may not be as popular as a chicken, but that doesn't mean they're not a bundle of fun!

I used to have ducks in my backyard. I loved to feed them. They are so cute!

14 Alpaca

Subscribe to memeulous or ill shank your grandad

Best Animal. They can handle small loads of weight and are very cute. Also their fur is very soft and valuable.

No. I would not like to share my opinion. Thank, you very much. But Alpaca's are very good. They are furry and are definitely better than normal sheep. That is why I vote for the Alpaca. There is no other reason. Although I think that Alpacas aren't actually that of a common farm animal. I guess I did share my opinion.

Alpaca can give you softer wool than sheep and they will protect your sheep heard

15 Goose

A goose is a very cute farm animal.

I had a goose that thought I was his mom once. He lived with chickens as his brothers and sisters. They were raised together. His name was Jeffery, and when I would lay down in the grass to read my book, he would climb up on my back. He had just learned to fly when we moved. One day a dog broke into the coop and attacked. He died along with all but one of the chickens. He was my little boy, and probably died fighting for the other birds.

Go geese! They are intelligent, loving friendly and great 'watchdogs'! They can really bond with there owner as well. I have not personally tasted goose eggs yet though.

Yes it should be

16 Ox

Ox is my Chinese zodiac

Oxen are nice animals. They have a nice look and coat.

Do these still live!?!?!?!

Do these still exist?

17 Llamas Llamas The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.

They remind me of Fornite

My grandpa Ward owns a llama farm because he lives in Pennsylvania. Grandma Rhoda, his wife, recently passed away because of cancer. But, hey! At least he has the llamas to keep him company!

Llamas are the best.

LLamas are amazing and funny

18 Yak Yak

hell yeah.

Can shear and get wool comparable to cashmere, can milk, as tough as a goat, as big as a cow can carry things and be ridden like a horse that are the best and most versatile of animals

19 Birds

Birds are wonderful animals

20 Carabao

For anyone reading this: A carabao, not caribou, is a water buffalo, and the national animal of the Phillipines.

My father or our family loves carabao because they can help us in different ways

It is the farmer's helper supposed to be there's a carabao..
how can a farmer produce or harvest the best rice if there's no carabao...

I think you mean "caribou"

21 Honey Bees

I love bees they are great for our planet and wonderful pollinators! Go bees

Honey bees are very important for the farm they produce honey by sucking on nectar

Sadly they will be soon extinct

22 Appaloosa

They are a breed of horse commonly with a different color spec on their body

Whats an appaloosa

I just love them.

23 Golden Pheasant

Golden pheasants are great. I have 3 varieties. And I make a lot of money on their eggs and chicks

24 Mules

Mikes are the best in my opinion because they can carry a large amount of weight other animals can't they are also really loyal

Mules are good for riding

So cute and loyal

Best for working in feilds.

25 Elk


Elk are elegant, gracful, and strong

26 Guineafowl

Keep bugs down and don't touch your vegetable garden

They make good eggs that you can make lots of money on!

They get rid of ticks good if you have cats.

27 Peafowl

These are beautiful animals.

They are beautiful animals who wouldn't want one

28 Deer Deer Deer are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer, the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk.

So pretty!

29 Frog Frog Frogs are a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura.

They are so useful and cute

<3 Love Frogs!

30 Peacock Peacock The peafowl include two Asiatic bird species (the blue or Indian peafowl originally of India and Sri Lanka and the green peafowl of Myanmar, Indochina, and Java) and one African species (the Congo peafowl native only to the Congo Basin) of bird in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the Phasianidae family, more.

Did you know that the females also can fan out there tails!

Pretty Bird


31 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.
32 Zebra Zebra Zebras are several species of African equids united by their distinctive black and white striped coats.

I like zebra

33 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species more.

They are cool and they are like cats to cool

I do not like fox's they eat farm animals.

Foxes eat and kill farm animals

Why a fox? They are great to look at and are stunning but really not on a farm all your livestock will be gone by the time you come back! Maybe leave the fox out for the time being! 🐺 Will eat anything save other animals not just one! 👎🏼

34 Bee Bee

Bee be good

Bees are amazing. They make awesome, super healthy, and sweet honey. They also give you beeswax which you can make Chapstick and candles to keep or sell. Also if you put them near your plants they will be producing a lot of big, beautiful, delicious fruit. Also bees are really fun to watch work.

On November 2 Hold on to your honey

35 Lemur Lemur

Great farm animal, I have ten, some people will say that they are illegal but that's bs you just have to know where to look, they are great for riding and lay really good eggs too. by far my favorite animal on the farm:)

guys it's a joke
