ANIMALS AND ITS BENEFICIAL USES TO MAN.
1. DOGSIt’s been proven that owning a dog can help you feel more relaxed, lessen medical visits, and even prevent heart attacks. It seems owners have created a tight-knit bond with dogs, sometimes referring to them as “part of the family”. So… really thinking about it, dogs are actually human’s best friend.Dogs are social creatures too just like us; they love to play and socialize. Sometimes, they may steal a treat off the table when we turn our backs, but I think we can let that slide as a repayment for their steadfast loyalty, love and non-judgment (especially when the sink is piled with dishes).| 2. WATER BUFFALOBubalus bubalis or carabao is like a sort of like a four-legged, non-gas-burning tractor. It can help with hauling heavy loadsof farmer’s stuff. Can handle the mud while plowing rice paddies. Can swim very well. Can get rid of a water hyacinth problem. Useful for rural tropical transportation. It also gives us meat and milk.|

3.GOATS There are a lot of reasons why farmers are into goat raising apart from this venture being cheaper and a lot easier than managing cows or other livestock. One of the reasons includes the goat's usefulness and many benefits whether dead or living. In fact, goats have always proven to be useful to man since time immemorial; anthropological evidences even suggest that goats were used as a milk and meat source. Goat hair and bones on the other hand were utilized to make clothing and tools, while its hide was made into water bottles, parchment and even wine bottles. Considering all these benefits, goats were even used by traders as money for purchase during the barter system.

All the said goat benefits still hold true today and just like the old times a lot of people are into goat farming to raise goat meat and milk. However, if the two industries will be compared, raising goats milk is still behind goat meat farming in terms of popularity but it is currently a steadily growing venture because of the following health benefits that could be derived from consuming goats milk:Goats milk is rich in protein, calcium,vit.B2,phosphorus,

4.POULTRY and FOWLS (Chicken, Geese, etc.)Health Benefits - Chicken is rated as a very good source of protein, providing 67.6% of the daily value for protein in 4 ounces. The structure of humans and animals is built on protein. We derive our amino acids from animal and plant sources of protein, then rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require.A Very Good Source of Protein - People who are meat eaters, but are looking for ways to reduce the amount of fat in their meals, can try eating more chicken. The leanest part of the chicken is the chicken breast, which has less than half the fat of a trimmed Choice grade T-bone steak. The fat in chicken is also less saturated than beef fat. However, eating the chicken with the skin doubles the amount of fat and saturated fat in the food. For this reason, chicken is best skinned before cooking. Protein Protects Against Bone Loss in Older People - Studies show that some sections of the population, especially older people, have poor protein intake. But protein may be important in reducing bone loss in older people. In one study, the 70- to 90-year-old men and women with the highest protein intakes lost significantly less bone over a four-year period than those who consumed less protein. Animal protein, as well as overall protein intake, was associated with preserving bone.

5. FRUIT BATS Fruit bats, the largest of the bat species, are extremely helpful animals (friendly drunks). Many consider Fruit Bats to be a pest, but they are super important; a lot of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy would not exist without their help. Fruit Bats eat tons of fruit…and you know what they say about fruit and its…cough…digestive benefits. Fruit Bats disperse the seeds (poop them out) and pollinate plants. Fruit bats help to distribute...
