OVERVIEW OF FOOD-PRODUCING ANIMAL INDUSTRIES IN ONTARIO The food-producing animal industries in Ontario are complex and multi-faceted. They involve many species of animals, each with their own health and production issues. Although there are many types of animals, fish and poultry raised for food in Ontario, this CVO Project identified six major food-producing animal sectors: beef cattle, dairy cattle, poultry, sheep, goats, swine and veal calves. Each of these sectors represents a separate and distinct industry, with its own particular characteristics, opportunities and challenges.
