Generally, the term “LIVESTOCK” is used in an extensive sense to cover all grown animals disregarding age, locating, or intention of breeding. Non-domesticated animals are kept out under this definition unless they are kept or raised in imprisonment. Domestic animals let in are large and small quadruple, poultry, insects (bees), and larvae of insects (silkworms).
In Western countries the category covers primarily cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, horses, donkeys, and mules; other animals, such as buffalo, cow, oxen, llamas, or camels, may predominate in the agriculture of other areas.
