What types of animals are raised on farms in Canada?

Farmers raise beef cattle, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, bison, goats, deer and elk.  Farmers and ranchers refer to their farm animals as livestock. 

More than food!

Animals provide people with more than just food. Gelatin, a protein from the connective tissue of cattle and pigs, is an ingredient used in the production of jello, glue and many beauty products. Gelatin servies primarily as a thickening agent and a texturizer that makes products smooth. Wax from bees is used in the production of lip balms and candles. Wool from sheep is used to make clothing, carpet and upholstery fabric.
