The Top Ten
1 Cattle 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.

Not that useful since they speak methane in the air which is bad for the environment! Goats and sheep are a lot more helpful!

They provide us the things for daily basis use and milk for the better health of the growing children...

They give us food, drink, and clothes (leather). Back then, cows can be used to plow the land

They are very useful since they provide man with lots of things like milk, beef etc.

2 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.

Farming, traveling. Previously used for war.

Should be one

3 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.

Mmm... they are also very cute.
But they bought the PETArds on this world.

Chickens are amazing

Best animal, so nice

4 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.

Their wool will keep you warm, the meat is delicious to many, the milk is very good, they trim the grass by grazing. Very useful!

Yes, sheep is useful. Like MT said. Their milk is popular, their wool is needed for making clothes, and their meats are also good

I have always wanted to have a few sheep.I think they are so sweet.And in the spring watching the lambs playing and jumping.But can anyone tell me can a sheep bloat? As a kid my parents had cows and I've seen them bloat.

5 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.

They will kick coyotes all day all night and protect your farm! They are a lot stronger than horses and don't get scared as easily! Tough little guys! Carried Mary to Jerusalem!

Carrying things and for some traveling.

6 Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore. It is active all around the world, and is one of the most popular domestic pets as of 2021. They come in more than 350 breeds.

Searching, hunting, guarding are common things. I heard once a dog saved a man/woman's life by preventing from taking drug overdose

7 Pig

They eat your left over food so you don't have to throw it out and waste it!

8 Bee

Bees are useful in so many ways, like providing honey as a sweetener instead of sugar, and helping the plants to grow by pollinating them.

Very important. Withiut bees, plants would die. Without plants, animals would die. Without animals, HUMANS will die.

Was thinking either bee or horse, and thought I'd go with the underdog

Bees are best

9 Camel A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.

You can't see Camel in every country. And it may not be useful in every country. But for desert areas camels are very useful. They can store fat/water in their humps. Which can provide them their water. So they can travel trough deserts for many days. People of those areas can use them for traveling through deserts, or use them for carrying things and also can eat their meat

Desert version of Horse and cow.

10 Elephant African elephants are elephants of the genus Loxodonta. The genus consists of two extant species: the African bush elephant, L. africana, and the smaller African forest elephant, L. cyclotis.

Carry people and their goods, lift many things. They are strong. They can bear many goods and can go far

They are popular in Thailand. Do many works

And also Elephant Circus. It''s not very useful. But it entertains viewers

I am what you say

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

Some meat, some dairy (especially if lactose intolerant)
And can eat weeds, palms, and shrubs instead of grass
Byebye kudzu vine

12 Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.

Monkey is very animal

13 Pigeon Pigeons and doves constitute the bird family Columbidae, which includes about 310 species. Pigeons are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and short slender bills. They primarily feed on seeds, fruits, and plants.

Besides carrying messages (which saved many lives in wartime), they are meat birds. I don't eat my beloved pet pigeons, though.

"Don't insult pigeons? " Is that a serious demand? Will you be writing a manifesto?

Goldanged poop machines. Least the mail carrier don't crap on yer car.

Pigeons make great pets

14 Shark The tiger shark is a species of requiem shark and the only extant member of the genus Galeocerdo. It is a large macropredator, capable of attaining a length over 5 m. Populations are found in many tropical and temperate waters, especially around central Pacific islands.
15 Snake 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. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.
16 Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. Rabbits are known for having long ears, and for being agile, as in having a notable ability to jump.

Useful? All they do is destroy crops and dig holes in your yard.

They're cute, but not useful.

They make good meat. Yum.

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

They give eggs, delicious meat, and are way more hardy and disease resistant than chickens!

Provides eggs and meat

19 Ox
20 Turtle Turtles are diapsids of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield. "Turtle" may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling testudines.
21 Llama The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.
22 Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

Are you for real? Cats are less useful than spiders? They catch rabbits, rats and mice and clear them away. Mine also once scared a big fox away.

A food stash can easily be diminished by a mouse or a rat but cats defeat that pesky pest!

Why last place?

23 Turkey
24 Spider

Spiders catch and eat mosquitoes and other harmful insects to human. Therefore, spiders are useful. Just don't make them fight, or even catch one. Because some of them are poisonous.

25 Goose The Canada goose is a large wild goose species with a black head and neck, white cheeks, white under its chin, and a brown body. Native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, its migration occasionally reaches northern Europe.
