Today I learned that the term “cow” refers not just to your mom, but to a specific status of the animal, and that the proper generic name for those big tanks that give us milk and beef is “cattle”.
How now brown cattle?
Hm…doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
So here is my dedication to the cattle and their respective statuses!
In Unicattle form, of course.
So yes, in case none of that made sense to you, cow refers to a female that has given birth to a calf. A heifer refers to a female that has not given birth.
A bull refers to a male that is physically able…and intact; while a steer is a male that has been castrated. You know, missing a little sump’m sump’m.
Learn something new every day!
How now brown Unicow?
