Stockbreeding is animal farming.
Farm animals are called livestock.
They include cattle (cows, bulls), sheep, pigs and poultry (chickens, turkeys).
Farmers breed them for thier meat, milk, eggs and skins.
There are two types of stockbreeding:
- Intensive farming. The animals live in pens and barns. Farmers give them hay or dry feed to eat.
- Free range farming. The animals live in the open and eat grass or grain.
