The earth needs animals because plants need animals and without plants and animals the earth is just locked up potential. life happens when a whole collection of different types of life interact in these great symbiotic exchanges of energy. Without soil life plant's can't grow, without animal life plants can't propagate or thrive, without either of these people don't thrive. Understanding how to build stronger synergistic relationships that unlock the life potential of the earth rather than extract and exploit it's resources is what animal husbandry is all about.
