Can we make a provision for their disposal (death, in this case), as at the time of their death, when we write off their book value, it will lead a greAT IMPACT ON PROFIT OF THAT YEAR.

 It should be treated as Fixed cost.

It is because it is mostly used in  Farm Accounting.

It should be understood that accounting and taxation are different. For accounting Livestock should be treated as fixed asset.  however in  case of taxation depreciation is not allowed and it is fully allowed when the livestock dies of no more useful.

Dear Friends,

All those who said to treat LIVESTOCK as FIXED ASSETS must definitely take a glance on para 3 of the ACCOUNTING STANDARD.....I hope ur opinions will surely change...

Livestock is treated as fixed assets, but not depreciable, shown at historical cost.

When livestock is died and anything from the carecase of the livestock is received, Deducted from the historical cost and deduction is taken of remaining amount by debiting profit and loss account

Live Stock can not be treated as Fixed Asset, as AS-10 exclusively specifies that that standard does not apply to Live Stock. Then how can we treat it as Fixed Asset?

I think it should be treated as seperate asset better it should be treated as deferred revenue expenditure and charge off the amount to Profit & Loss based on its life.
