In the Standard Grade Geography exam there are three types of farming you need to know about - arable, livestock and mixed.
- Arable farms are ones where the main way of making money is by growing crops
- Livestock farms are where animals are the important part of the farm
- Mixed farms are where animals and crops are both important to the farmer
Only British examples are used in the exam questions.
