Cub Scout Archives: Bear Elective 16 - Farm Animals

You can learn more about farm animals even if you don’t live on a farm or a ranch. If you do, it is easier, but if not, you can find pictures of different farm animals in magazines or on the internet and learn how they are used. You can read a book about farm animals. Then when you go for a ride in the country, you will know what kinds of cattle, horses, pigs, and sheep you see.
