Point taken but that would be to easy...... As an example. When was the last time that you heard , he/she is a "dairy rancher"?

The term "dairy farmer" is applied to those engaged primarily in (livestock) milk production. I agree that the term rancher usually applies to those who raise grazing livestock but farmer works too. Or maybe it is that I have done all of the farming stuff since childhood (including livestock) and it never occurred to me that I am anything but a farmer. In my world us small business types are farmers, the JR Ewing's of the world are ranchers.

I have never played the zynga game "farmville" but I am pretty sure you can buy fake livestock there and I get the feeling it would not have been as successful had they called it "ranchville".

Good point. I live in IA. We have farms here and lots of livestock. There is also an Alpaca farm just south of town.
