Cow Knowledge

Cows are members of the sub-family ‘Bovinae’ of the family ‘Bovidae’. This family also includes Gazelles, Buffalo, Bison, Antelopes, Sheep, and Goats.

  • A cow is a female animal that has had at least one calf.
  • A heifer is a female animal that has never had a calf. Once a heifer has a calf, she automatically becomes a cow.
  • A bull is a mature male animal that is used for breeding.
  • A steer is a male animal that has been castrated.

Our Hank is a “bull”.  Myrtle is a “heifer”.

Hank and Myrtle get to see all the clients and patients that come in.  Stay tuned for their adventures here in our front lobby!
