Meat and Poultry are the flesh of animals that are eaten as food. Humans have hunted and killed animals for meat since prehistoric times. Over time, animals such as chickens, sheep, pigs and cattle have become domesticated which has then lead to meat production on an industrial scale with the aid of farming and slaughterhouses. Meat is mostly comprised of water, protein and fat and can be cooked and eaten in a number of ways. Each animal that is slaughtered for meat will produce a number of 'cuts' of meat, that being meat taken from specific areas of the animal, for example a chicken breast, a sirloin from a cow, a neck of lamb or a pork chop. Many animals can have meat gained from them aside from the main four of chicken, pigs, cows and sheep. Some examples of these are rabbit, deer, duck, pigeon and pheasant, which are classed as 'game' animals, and were traditionally eaten in pies in victorian times.
