Farming really has two branches: arable and pastoral. Arable is where farmers plough the land, sow seeds and grow plants to harvest. You know, stuff like corn, wheat, vegetables, soy beans and so on. Pastoral farming involves animals. I guess you’ll know what they might be: cattle (for meat, cheese and milk), hens or chickens (for meat and eggs), sheep (for meat and wool) and many other animals.
Did you know?... In
Peru, the local people keep guinea pigs to eat. And in Australia, kangaroos
are farmed for their meat and fur. Some people even farm ostriches (meat and
feathers). Happily, no one farms penguins, although people did once kill us
for meat. The
only animals that ever eat people are occasional tigers and other humans (cannibals)!
