Cow is typically used to mean all cattle; however, the word specifically refers to females who are older than 30 months or who have birthed children.
Females who have not yet calved are known as heifers (like me)
Mature males are steers or bulls
Cattle have a sharp sense of hearing and perceive higher and lower frequencies better than humans do
In some ways, their eyes are also powerful tools. Cattle possess 320-degree panoramic vision, which enables them to see in almost every direction - except directly behind them without moving their heads.
However, their depth perception, particularly when their heads are in an upright position, is poor. For this reason, cattle sometimes cringe at shadows on the ground.
