Agriculture is also called farming or husbandry. it is the cultivation of animals, plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, biofuel and other products..

ERGH, It was a toughie, but fair.. I had problems with the Gross Profit thing.. and the last question got me a little confused, probably because I don't think I have ever heard my teacher call the SOI a 'Scientific Study' but, at least I was the only one in my class that studied ;) Did you guys finish early?

I finished ten minutes early but changed a few of the multiple choice answers near the end.
For the carcase composition question i said that the fat and meat percentage always has to be greater than the carcase composition and that specific markets require different compositions. ????
