Down On The Farm
Let's learn about Cattle!
Cows are often called cattle. The adult female is called a cow. The adult male is called a bull.A baby is called a calf.
Cattle are farm animals with thick skin and hoofed feet. Cattle were domesticated (tamed from wild animals) thousands of years ago. They are farmed for their milk, meat, hides (leather), and many other products such as cheese, cream, gelatin, glue and soap to name a few. In some parts of the world, cattle are still used to pull plows and carts. There are still some wild cattle (like the gaur and banteng) living in Asia. Cattle vary in color from white, black, brown to tan. Their milk is produced in the female's udders.
