Why were the animals important to the farmers in Egypt?

The cows would give meat, milk and leather. Cows also pulled the carts and plows while donkeys carried sacks of grain and trampled cereal ears to remove their grains.. Sheep and goats gave meat, wool and hides. Geese, ducks and hens gave eggs and meat. Pigs were also kept as meat.

  1. For some reason this picture is funny to me. But I cant imagine that those animals were used for meat, wool, eggs, etc just like we do today. I think that's terrible don't you?
