ABSTRACT
Cow, an adult female animal of the cattle family. (The term is also applied to females of other animals whose males are called bulls. Examples are the seal, the moose, and the elephant.) There are three types of cattle in the United States: (1) dairy cattle, developed to produce milk; (2) beef cattle, raised for their meat, and (3) dual-purpose cattle, raised for both milk and meat. This article is limited to dairy cattle. Beef and dual-purpose breeds are discussed under CATTLE.
