We all know that every modern agriculture is based on maintaining a list of domestic animals that produce products that create the economy.
However, which animals are called domestic animals?
Since ancient times people have caught wild animals in nature and have tamed them. Animals were used to humans and began to breed in captivity.
One of the first tired animals was a wolf. From wolves, a man brought out hundreds of breeds of dogs that we meet every day on the street.
A domestic cat comes from a wild cat, who now lives in Africa. A man has tamed the wild cat for a long time, but, apparently, wild cats do not differ much from domestic ones.
Species of cattle are derived from wild bulls. One of the ancestors of modern breeds was a wild bull tour. Tours lived in steppe countries and died out about three hundred years ago.
The domestic pig comes from a wild boar. We know many breeds of domestic pigs. They are fertile, quickly accumulate fat and unpretentious to food.
Ducks were withdrawn four and a half thousand years ago in India. They are kept for meat and eggs. All breeds of domestic ducks come from ice-cream duck. Their eggs are not very tasty, so breed ducks for the sake of meat.
Domestic geese originate from wild geese. The most valuable are beef breeds. The geese also give fluff and feathers.
To humiliate and domesticate animals people began from ancient times. In those days, people, armed with stones, sticks, hunted all the tribe on wild animals. Subsequently, people began to hunt instead of killing animals. They were kept in units, fed, and they were gradually accustomed to a man.
It’s not easy to tame animals. People tried to keep antelopes, cheetahs, cranes, crocodiles at home. These animals did not become domestic yet.
Wild animals come from wild, which people have tamed. A domestic animal is considered to be the one that gives offspring and cannot live without human care. A pets are cultivated for the sake of consumer products, as a drag force, for pleasure.
