Outputs From Working Animals

The output from draft animals as a contribution to the community is more difficult to assess than that from beef or dairy animals. Draft force, speed, work, and power have all been used to assess output of draft animals. Area plowed or cultivated and distance traveled or load carried in transport are outputs that can be measured fairly easily. Less immediate, perhaps, is the yield of the crop their draft animals have helped to produce.

The amount of work an animal can do will depend on the speed at which it works and the draft force generated. For a particular draft force, it is the speed that will determine the power output of the animal, i.e., the rate at which the animal does the work. Therefore, these parameters are all closely related. Various aspects of the animal, the implement, the environment, and the operator all interact to determine the amount of work done in a day.
