There are many varieties of domestic cattle. Female cattle are known as cows, while males are called bulls, and young are called calves.

There are over 1 billion cattle in the world. Cattle eat over 95 pounds of food in one day. Cattle have four stomachs. A cow (female) milked twice a day can produce over 10 gallons of milk. Ten gallons of milk weigh about 80 pounds. The spots on a cow are like a snowflake - no two spotted cows have the same markings.

In other languages, the word for "cow" is:
Chamorro: baka

In other languages, the word for "calf" is:
Chamorro: bakiya (also means young cow)

---excerpt from the Illustrated Bible Dictionary

Cattle - Abounded in the Holy Land. To the rearing and management of them the inhabitants chiefly devoted themselves (Deuteronomy 8:13; Deuteronomy 12:21; 1 Samuel 11:5; 1 Samuel 12:3; Psalms 144:14; Jeremiah 3:24). They may be classified as
(1.) Neat cattle. Many hundreds of these were yearly consumed in sacrifices or used for food. The finest herds were found in Bashan, beyond Jordan (Numbers 32:4). Large herds also pastured on the wide fertile plains of Sharon. They were yoked to the plough (1 Kings 19:19), and were employed for carrying burdens (1 Chronicles 12:40). They were driven with a pointed rod (Judges 3:31) or goad (q.v.). According to the Mosaic law, the mouths of cattle employed for the threshing-floor were not to be muzzled, so as to prevent them from eating of the provender over which they trampled (Deuteronomy 25:4). Whosoever stole and sold or slaughtered an ox must give five in satisfaction (Exodus 22:1); but if it was found alive in the possession of him who stole it, he was required to make double restitution only (Exodus 22:4). If an ox went astray, whoever found it was required to bring it back to its owner (Exodus 23:4; Deuteronomy 22:1, Deuteronomy 22:4). An ox and an ass could not be yoked together in the plough (Deuteronomy 22:10).
(2.) Small cattle. Next to herds of neat cattle, sheep formed the most important of the possessions of the inhabitants of Palestine (Genesis 12:16; Genesis 13:5; Genesis 26:14; Genesis 21:27; Genesis 29:2, Genesis 29:3). They are frequently mentioned among the booty taken in war (Numbers 31:32; Joshua 6:21; 1 Samuel 14:32; 1 Samuel 15:3). There were many who were owners of large flocks (1 Samuel 25:2; 2 Samuel 12:2, compare Job 1:3). Kings also had shepherds "over their flocks" (1 Chronicles 27:31), from which they derived a large portion of their revenue (2 Samuel 17:29; 1 Chronicles 12:40). The districts most famous for their flocks of sheep were the plain of Sharon (Isaiah 65:10), Mount Carmel (Micah 7:14), Bashan and Gilead (Micah 7:14). In patriarchal times the flocks of sheep were sometimes tended by the daughters of the owners. Thus Rachel, the daughter of Laban, kept her father's sheep (Genesis 29:9); as also Zipporah and her six sisters had charge of their father Jethro's flocks (Exodus 2:16). Sometimes they were kept by hired shepherds (John 10:12), and sometimes by the sons of the family (1 Samuel 16:11; 1 Samuel 17:15). The keepers so familiarized their sheep with their voices that they knew them, and followed them at their call. Sheep, but more especially rams and lambs, were frequently offered in sacrifice. The shearing of sheep was a great festive occasion (1 Samuel 25:4; 2 Samuel 13:23). They were folded at night, and guarded by their keepers against the attacks of the lion (Micah 5:8), the bear (1 Samuel 17:34), and the wolf (Matthew 10:16; John 10:12). They were liable to wander over the wide pastures and go astray (Psalms 119:176; Isaiah 53:6; Hosea 4:16; Matthew 18:12). Goats also formed a part of the pastoral wealth of Palestine (Genesis 15:9; Genesis 32:14; Genesis 37:31). They were used both for sacrifice and for food (Deuteronomy 14:4), especially the young males (Genesis 27:9, Genesis 27:14, Genesis 27:17; Judges 6:19; Judges 13:15; 1 Samuel 16:20). Goat's hair was used for making tent cloth (Exodus 26:7; Exodus 36:14), and for mattresses and bedding (1 Samuel 19:13, 1 Samuel 19:16). (See GOAT.)
