Livestock production is the farming of domesticated terrestrial animals to produce food, fibre and labour. Livestock occupy almost one-third of the ice-free terrestrial land surface of the globe and are an integral part of human history, providing multiple benefits beyond the obvious supply of food and fibre. In many parts of the world livestock are also culturally embedded into the social fabric of society, from being used as a banking system in Africa through to being a religious symbol in India.
