Cow You can find two types of cows farm. Dairy cows that give milk and beef cows for meat. They live together in a herd. Cows come in lots of different colours; black/white, brown, black, light brown. Pig They like to hunt in the earth for roots and vegetables to eat. When they are hot they like to lie in cool wet mud. Their tails are small and curly. Pigs give us pork, bacon and sausages. Sheep They like to live on the hills and moors away from the farm. Their woolly fleece can be made into lovely sweaters, and they also give us lamb and mutton. Chickens/Hens They love to wander pecking in the soil for seeds and grain. They lay eggs which we can eat, and produce chicken meat as well. When a baby chicken is born it can walk and find its own food straight away. Turkeys Baby turkeys are called poults and when they grow up they are bigger than chickens. They eat a cereal-based diet mainly made with wheat. Wheat This is called a cereal and is grown and harvested to use to make flour for bread. There are lots of different types of bread, which use different types of flour. Potatoes These are grown on farms but also on allotments and even in our own gardens. They grow under the ground and are vegetables. They can be eaten in all sorts of ways, including mash, roast potatoes, chips and crisps. Apples/Pears These are fruit and grow on trees in orchards. When they are ready to eat they are picked and some are taken to be made into apple and pear juice. There are lots of different types of apples. Not all of them are green.
