Domestic cattle

Domestic cattle, colloquially called cows, are domesticated equidae from the Bovinae subfamily of the Bovidae family. They raise cattle for meat, milk and dairy products and leather. Mainly used in the past for hauling carts and plows, in some places they are still used today. In some countries, e.g. in India, cows are sacred and worshiped animals. A male bovine animal is a bull, a male ox is buried, a female is a cow, and a puppy is a calf or heifer (male) or heifer (female). Cicko cattle is an indigenous Slovenian breed, once widespread in Gorenjska and Tolmin. I painted the cows with a farmer from our village who raised them exclusively for milk production.

  1. my grandparents lived in Wisconsin and I often went to visit. Wisconsin was one of the top US producers of cheese and Dairy products.

    we used to go to the University of Wisconsin and their Dairy barn. You could watch cows being milked, and then enjoy fresh ice cream!!!

    • Thanks for watching and kind comment, dear Carol…I also miss them in the meadows … they graze a little outside with us … although we live in the countryside there is a lot of traffic and we would not want to protect all meadows … they prefer to be enclosed in stables
