Cattle grazing in the pasture

In the drier parts of the Prairies, in the southwestern part of United States, cattle rearing is carried on a commercial scale. Vast herds of Cattle and Sheep are kept on large Ranches. Richer pastures are used for cattle rearing, and poorer sparse fields are used for sheep. North America is the largest producer of meat, and it contributes around one-fourth of the world production.

Cows on a Dairy Farming

It is an important industry of the USA and Canada. Dairy farming is found in the cooler and humid part of the Prairies, Great lakes areas and northeast region along the Atlantic coast. North America produces about \(25\) per cent of the world's total milk and dairy products.
 
Fishing:
 
Fish has a relatively minor role in the American diet. This is why the domestic fishing industry hasn't flourished in North America while Japanese, Russian, and Scandinavian vessels intensively exploit the rich North Atlantic and North Pacific fisheries for their home and export markets.
But, Fishing is locally important in the seas around the continent.
