Farm Animals

In this section of Animal Corner we are featuring just some of the animals that reside on the farm. You can find lots of interesting animal information about your favourite farm animals. You can discover and learn what life is like on the farm for sheep, pigs, cows, goats, ducks, llamas, chickens and horses.

Farm animals are bred for many purposes. Chickens give us our eggs, Cows and Goats provide us with nutritious milk. Different breeds of sheep produce many kinds of wool fibres which are made into clothing. Pigs provide us with bacon and pork and Ducks become a succulent duck roast. Horses are used as working animals, sports and leisure activities.

However, all these animals are not just there to provide us with materials, aid and provisions, they also make wonderful pets which give us years of pleasure and devotion. Some of them even look after other animals you may have, just like the adorable Llamas!

Chickens

Chickens are domesticated birds that cannot fly. With over 150 breeds in the world that come in lots of colours and patterns, there are probably more chickens than people.

Cows

Cows are raised for many reasons including: milk, cheese, other dairy products, also for meat such as beef and veal and leather hide. In older times they were work animals.

Ducks

Ducks are birds. They are also called 'Waterfowls' because they are normally found in places where there is water like ponds, streams and rivers where they swim with their webbed feet!

Goats

Goats are amazing animals. They are tough and versatile and have more uses than you could ever imagine. They can survive and thrive just about anywhere.

Horses

Horses belong to the equus family. Equus comes from the ancient Greek word meaning quickness. Horses are mammals in the same family as zebras, mules and donkeys. Horses are used for many things including trekking, sports and work.

Llamas

The llama is a large camelid that originated in North America and then later on moved on to South America. They are tame animals and make brilliant pets. They will even look after your other animals!

Pigs

Pigs have a trait of looking like they walk on tip-toes. They are actually clean animals who roll in mud to keep cool. Click on the picture to find out why!

Sheep

Sheep are docile animals, very timid but also very interesting. They are grazing animals and an important part of livestock. Sheep can be kept as pets or bred for wool and meat.
