I believe that the use of animals in agriculture is necessary and without some implementation of these animals, agriculture would not be sustainable. While I do believe that animals are necessary, I also believe that they should be implemented in a way that is least disruptive to their natural lives. There are many benefits provided by animals in regard to farming such as the use of manure and the natural predation they provide against pests. Without using manure, there is a 7-year fallow period between crop cycles which reduces agricultural efficiency by a tremendous amount. Natural animal predation is also extremely important as it slows down the process of gaining resistance by pests and this means fewer new chemicals are needed to control crops. A possible solution that can lead to this balance between the use of animals while still caring for their well-being would be to limit the ability of farmers to exploit these animals by only allowing for natural predation and the use of manure that is produced naturally by animals.
