I would say states where farms are more prevalent would be Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. Other states may have more farms but will seem less agricultural due to less distinction between the urban and rural areas.

I posted this list of states by number of farms before, but the data is from 2007. I know there is data on livestock numbers because I've seen it used before but I don't where to find it.
States by Number of Farms (2007)

I looked up horses and amazingly half of all wild horses in America live in Nevada.

I was surprised at Texas... Although they are a huge state so they have a lot of room. I guess I expected to see Texas being less rural. Interesting.

Missouri and Oklahoma has the most beef cows per sq. mile, if you add in milk cows it would then move Kentucky in to second place behind Missouri.
Most stats will cover cattle, chickens, hogs and turkeys as these account for the vast majority of farm animals.
Nebraska, South Dakota and Kansas have the highest percentage of farmland of any states by it is mostly crops rather than livestock.

Default Highest Horse Population ..

Texas shows the highest horse population -- estimated at 978,822, with California at 698,345 and Florida at 500,124.

My favorite is the " MORGAN" horse , choice of the US Calvary .. You can see him at work in the movie "Dances with Wolves" (1990) with Kevin Costner..

Lt. Dunbar's horse, "Cisco" (real name Buck or Plain Justin Bar) was a Quarter Horse and lived his days out at 1880 Town in South Dakota where he died not long ago at the age of 33.

Minnesota ranks 2nd in the nation as far as horses per capita

Military use..!
Morgans were used as cavalry mounts by both sides in the American Civil War. Horses with Morgan roots included Sheridan's Winchester, also known as Rienzi, (a descendent of Black Hawk).[12] Stonewall Jackson's "Little Sorrel" has alternately been described as a Morgan[21] or an American Saddlebred, a breed heavily influenced by the Morgan.[22] While Morgan enthusiasts have stated that the horse Comanche, the only survivor of the Custer regiment after the Battle of the Little Big Horn, was either a Morgan or a Mustang/Morgan mix,[4] records of the U.S. Army and other early sources do not support this. Most accounts state that Comanche was either of "Mustang lineage"[23] or a mix of "American" and "Spanish" blood.[24] The University of Kansas Natural History Museum, which has the stuffed body of Comanche on display, makes no statement as to his breed. All sources agree that Comanche originated in the Oklahoma or Texas area, making his Mustang background more likely.
