What Are Farm Animals and Domesticated Animals?


Domesticated or domestic animals are animals that are bred to serve varying purposes of humans. Domesticated animals differ from wild animals in that they are born, raised, conditioned, and reproduced to work with, respond to, or serve humans in one form or another.


Farm animals are a type of domesticated animal that serve purposes in the form of agriculture. They may be raised and used for their meat (such as chicken or pigs), milk (such as from cows or sheep), or labor (such as horses, cattle, or donkeys).
