    12 Useful Animals For Humans. Which of These Is Your #1?

    My 19 year old grandson and I were discussing this yesterday. He feels the American Bison ranks high. Indians lived here for thousands of years using the bison for so many things to subsist:food,shelter,blankets.

    At one time, 60 million roamed the continent from Alaska and Canada all the way to Mexico! Amazing.

    Overall he went with the cow. I think the pig and chicken are quite marvelous. Any favorite(s) ,GRM?

    I'm going with Sheep, because I'm a fan of woolen goods and the occasional lamb chop.
    However-
    That's a very Norte-americano list, if you don't mind my saying so. Even then, what happened to Dog, or Tuco and his relatives?
    Branching out a bit, I'd consider Water Buffalo, Elephant and Camel.

    I know it's quite Norte Americano. We will have future polls which will zero in on South American,African,Asian,etc.,habitat. We don't want any viable animals on other continents having hurt feelings!

    Tuco sends his regards from Buckskin Gulch. He appreciates your support and has also chastised me for not including him and his kin. But what can you expect from a mule?!

    Thank you for your vote.

    I love roosters

    Unfortunately, the usefulness of animals is evaluated mainly in terms of eating or causing suffering to these animals. I am sad because of this. It would be very good if people learned to interact with nature without harming animals. But this, alas, is impossible.
    And so I love roosters. They are beautiful and proud birds
