Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,

most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,

most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

Cattlecolloquially cows[note 1]are the most common type of large domesticated


ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,

most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified
collectively as Bos taurus.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk
and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks that pull carts,
plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
meaning.

Around 10,500 years ago, cattle were domesticated from as few as 80 progenitors in
southeast Turkey.[1] According to an estimate from 2011, there are 1.4 billion
cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,
and cattle raiding consequently one of the earliest forms of theft.Cattle

cattle in the world.[2] In 2009, cattle became one of the first livestock animals
to have a fully mapped genome.[3] Some consider cattle the oldest form of wealth,

ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the
most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified

plows and other implements). Other products include leather and dung for manure or
fuel. In some regions, such as parts of India, cattle have significant religious
