Beyond Food

In addition to producing food, agriculture produces other necessities and a great many products beyond absolute necessities. Many of these products come from animals. They may be edible but most are inedible. The many ways animal products and by-products are used to provide or manufacture clothing,
medicines, industrial products, cosmetics, household goods, sports equipment, and luxuries is amazing. Virtually every part of an animal is put to good use.
