Top Ten Farm Animals

Top Ten Animals That are Commonly Found On A Traditional Farm.
The Top Ten
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 NUMBER 1 ANIMAL. They are a girl's best friend. Sure, people are sometimes kicked, and they do sometimes kill, but that's just their instincts. If they are scared, they run away. It's usually the human's fault if you get kicked. Depends on how they are treated. if you respect horses, they will respect you.

Horses are the best farm animal. Many might say they are pointless and they don't understand you and they are just money out of your pocket. Horses are intelligent, smart, joyful, wonderful animals. If you are looking for a strong animal to plow the fields or bring you to they olympics, horses are the best. Do you know where "horsepower" came from? Horses. Its not called "cow power" its, horse power! Power rom they greatest mammal, with its ling flowing mane and tail, with endurance and stamina, horses will win the race for you!

I have 3 stunning horses who I love with all my heart. I read in a comment below that 'they are beautiful and you can ride them but that's it'. Wow, how small-minded. Horses ARE beautiful and you DO ride them, but they are so much more than that. They neigh with delight when they see you, and love affection. They are my pride and joy, and you can make a fortune from their babies. If you have space and time, I recommend horses, ponies and donkeys- they will steal your heart.

Horses are smart, you can do anything with them, to therapeutic rides to trick riding, they can be your best friend in the world, the human and the horse have a special bond that they can form to the point where you can ride bareback to riding them without a bridle. I have two and I love them to death

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.

THESE SHOULD BE FIRST NOT SECOND! Cows give us milk. I know goats do to, but I honestly think cow milk is better. Also, cows used to be used a lot more than horses. I don't know why people switched. People say they are slower than horses, which is true, but they have greater endurance. Also, they can make STEAK, which is one of the joys of life! Besides, many people think cows are dumb but that is NOT TRUE! And, they are adorable! If you want another reason cows are better than horses, I have one for you. I LOVE THEIR NOISE! EVERYONE MUST MAKE THIS WORLD AN EMPIRE OF COW-LOVERS! MOOO

By far the best animal it gives us milk yum I mean who doesn't like they make good pets to if you look after them well and if you love them they will love you to sum up my story cows are great! 1

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

Thank you cows for being your self and giving us something we need. Because they do something for us we should do something for them.

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.

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.

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.

Chickens are amazing starting farm animals. They are cheap and guaranteed to provide you with eggs (and meat). They grow rapidly too and are extremely easy to care for and don't take up a lot of space at all.

I raised these and started my first business from selling chickens and their eggs. It was a good first business.

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

My mum really wants a goat on a farm when we move because we live in Cairns and there is not enough room in Cairns so we will have to move if we wanted to... Anyway I think a goat is a perfect farm animal because you can milk and make cheese and make soap so I think it's a perfect pet to have on a farm.

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!

Goats are awesome I have two saanen goats and they produce so much milk enough for our family of 7! Including cheese, cream and butter. And they cost so much less than cows to buy and to have!

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.

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!

I love pigs I have 3 and they r about to have piglets and they are all very friendly. They make money if you sell piglets or if you sell them as pork. I think this should be number 1.

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

Very cute when piglets. I love showing hogs in fairs. Great animal in profit and taste.

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 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.

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 awesome there soft and cuddly and help people get to sleep there were so many times I had to count down from twenty sheep to get my children to sleep.

Sheep are so cute, the milk is so much better then cows or goats and much more healthier then any other milk, and you can make the wool into lots of stuff.

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.

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

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

Donkeys are tough and friendly. Good animals to keep

Donkeys are useful for actually don't know what.

Dog

I think a dog because you can play and it guards your farm animals for you if you want a guard dog but a normal dog than yes as well because it's cute and a good choice for a farm animal.

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

Good choice farmers use these a lot to guide sheep to where the farmer wants them to go but sometimes the sheep dogs will kill the sheep but its really rare.

I have a farm with 2 chickens, rooster, 5 cows, 4 sheep, 8 horses(a lot), farm cat and a sheep dog. The sheep dog is called lamby (cute name) and is THE BEST (much better than Louis, my farm cat)

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

"I think that Rabbits shouldn't live on a farm because they are cute, funny, and furry. But of corse they can also be harmful because if they have sharp teeth than they can bite you and if the bunny is in a bad mood than it might bite you and also you should never have a baby when there also is a Rabbits at your house and plus if you have a gate in your back yard they might figure a way to get out.

So don't get a rabbit on your farm or in your house because they are very cute, furry, and funny but trust me don't get one. P.S. They will eat all of your carrots.

Rabbits are cool specially cuy rabbits or as you call them guinea pigs or dwarf rabbits. Here in Bolivia these are more popular than the common ones with longer ears.

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

Carrots are actually toxic to bunnies if eaten in large quantity. They tend to like to eat leafy greens.

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!

These are the cutest animal to have on the farm. There are always there to keep u company and most of them are very good mice hunters.

Cats are lovely and they keep the rodents away. Without cats, there is no farm!

The Contenders
Alpaca

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.

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

Alpacas wool is very soft and warm and reproduce pretty fast if you want a steady cash flow

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

Turkey

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.

Studies have shown that these are dumbest birds on earth

Turkeys are good for their meat that's it.

Ox

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

Well done you guys come first

Do these still exist?

Ox is my Chinese zodiac

Goose

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.

A goose is a very cute farm animal.

Yes it should be

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.

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!

Why
Happy llama sad llama mentally disturbed llama
Super llama drama llama big fat momma llama

Llamas are cute fluffy creatures that also have a mythical fusion called the "Llamacorn". Beat that alpacas!

LLamas are amazing and funny

Yak

I don't know why, but I guess they are just cool, so I like them.

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

Carabao

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

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

A carabo is a great animal it helps in many ways but my family has 5 buffalos to to our "jobs"

I do not understand what a caribou is?

Appaloosa

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

Whats an appaloosa

I just love them.

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.

Mules

Mules are good for riding

So cute and loyal

Best for working in feilds.

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

Peafowl

They are beautiful animals who wouldn't want one

These are beautiful animals.

Rooster A rooster, also known as a cockerel or cock, is a male gallinaceous bird, with cockerel being younger and rooster being an adult male chicken.
