“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
― George Orwell, Animal Farm
Please, allow me to share with you some observations I have made while keeping livestock on our small farm, and observing our modern, free, and progressive society.
With livestock, it is a common practice to cull the unproductive from the herd.
"In New York City, thousands more black babies are aborted each year than born alive."
With livestock, it is a common practice to affect population control by allowing only castrated males to frolic with the females of the herd.
Ahead of the parade, a poll found that support in the country for same-sex marriage is at an all-time high.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
It is a common practice to provide livestock with shelter.

It is a common practice to keep livestock in order to produce food and provide work.

It is a common practice to divide livestock into small groups for easy keeping.
In politics and sociology, divide and rule (or divide and conquer) is gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into pieces that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy. The concept refers to a strategy that breaks up existing power structures and prevents smaller power groups from linking up.
EDIT: How did I forget this one?
It is a common safety practice to de-horn livestock and remove their natural self defense mechanisms.
Dehorning is the process of removing the fully grown horns of livestock. Cattle, sheep, and goats are sometimes dehorned for economic and safety reasons.

Finally, another quote from George.
“I saw a little boy, perhaps ten years old, driving a huge cart-horse along a narrow path, whipping it whenever it tried to turn. It struck me that if only such animals became aware of their strength we should have no power over them, and that men exploit animals in much the same way as the rich exploit the proletariat.” ― George Orwell, Animal Farm
