Micro livestock are breeds and species deliberately chosen for small size and ecological or economic footprint. The intent is to choose varieties to fit a particular niche, for subsistence or market, that is more appropriate to the climate, locale, cultural practices and space in a particular region.

Some examples:

  • Iguana
  • Chickens
  • Guinea pig (cuy)
  • miniature pigs
    • Vietnames pot-bellied pigs
  • Miniature cattle
  • Goats
  • Sheep
  • Rabbits
  • Insects
