Description
Description

Bovines, under the Bovinae subfamily, are a diverse group of ruminant mammals including cattle, buffaloes, and bison. Domesticated cattle, like cows, have been integral to human agriculture, providing milk, meat, leather, and labor. Wild relatives, such as the African buffalo, roam grasslands and forests. Historically, bovines evolved around 20 million years ago, with a rich fossil record showing their adaptive journey. Their habitats span grasslands, swamps, forests, and even high-altitude regions, depending on the species. Bovines have deeply influenced human civilizations, with domestication shaping societies, economies, and diets, and their wild counterparts playing crucial roles in ecosystem dynamics.

Anatomy
Anatomy

Bovines, including cows, bison, and buffaloes, have sturdy, robust bodies with four legs ending in cloven hooves, perfect for traversing diverse terrains. They possess a ruminant digestive system, featuring a multi-chambered stomach that efficiently breaks down tough plant material. Their heads are adorned with horns or antlers in some species, used for defense and dominance battles. Bovines communicate through a range of sounds, from the deep mooing of cattle to the grunting of bison. They have a keen sense of smell and good hearing, but their eyesight is less acute. Generally, bovines are strong yet gentle giants, moving with a slow, deliberate grace.

Human Interaction
Human Interaction

Humans have a long-standing, multifaceted relationship with bovines. Cattle were among the first animals domesticated for agricultural use, providing milk, meat, leather, and labor. In many cultures, cows are revered, symbolizing abundance and nurturing. Bovines have a prominent place in pop culture, from the iconic cow character in the "Moo Moo Farm" video game to humorous depictions in cartoons and advertisements.

Conservation efforts for wild bovines like bison and buffaloes focus on habitat preservation and sustainable management, given their roles in ecosystem balance. While domesticated breeds are widespread, ensuring the survival of their wild cousins remains a crucial ecological concern.

Common Questions
Common Questions
What do cows eat?

Cows are herbivores and need of lots of nutrition to produce milk. A cow’s diet consists of grass silage, hay, alfalfa hay, grains, and corn. Typically, barley, oats, minerals, and vitamins are mixed into their food. Cows drink about 25 gallons of water a day.

How many cows can graze per acre?

Generally, a cow and calf pair need 1.5 to 2 acres for adequate grazing, but this depends on the location. Other factors that affect how many cows can graze per acre include the soil fertility, pasture quality, and rain.

Why do cows wear bells?

Cowbells are used by farmers locate and keep track of the cow herd by the sound of the bells. They also may scare away any potential predators. As technology has improved, the use and need of cowbells has become less popular.

Charolais Cattle
Comparison illustration of the size of a Charolais Cattle to a typical person

Charolais is a breed of large and cream-colored bovine animals that have been bred for draft purposes in France but are mostly used for breeding and beef production, which is behind the popularity of the Holstein. The Charolais is a crossbreed of beef and dairy cows; the Charbray, a hybrid of Charolais and Brahman. The Charolais was first imported into the United States from a herd in Mexico in 1936 and is now a regional favorite and globally distributed. Charolais are herbivores which means they only eat plants and vegetables. Charolais are typically robust, they are resistant to cold winters and hot summers.

Charolais Cattle have a shoulder height between 53.1”-59” (135-150 cm), body length from 91”-100” (230-253 cm), standing height of roughly 56.3”-61.4” (143-156 cm), and a body width of 22.8”-25.2” (58-64 cm). Weights of Charolais Cattle vary between males and females with males weighing between 2000-2500 lb (910-1135 kg) and females from 1250-1600 lb (565-725 kg). Charolais Cattle have a typical productive lifespan of 4-6 years and natural lifespan of 15-40 years.

Black Angus Cattle
Scale illustration of an average Black Angus Cattle compared to a human

The Black Angus, a pure, pollinated beef cattle breed, also known for many years as ”Aberdeen Angus”. The origin of the Black Angus is unclear, but the breed is closely related to the curly-coated Galloway and is local to the Northeastern parts of Scotland. Often referred to as the oldest breed in Britain. Characteristic of the Black Angus is the black color, the pollinated eyes, the small and low neck. Angus is a cattle breed of the highest rank and, for years, purebred or crossbred Angus steers have occupied prominent positions of distinction at the leading fat-stock shows in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Black Angus Cattle have a shoulder height between 53.1”-57.1” (135-145 cm), body length from 86”-94” (218-238 cm), standing height of roughly 57.1”-61” (145-155 cm), and a body width of 22.4”-24.4” (57-62 cm). Weights of Black Angus Cattle vary between males and females with males weighing between 1850-2300 lb (840-1045 kg) and females from 1150-1250 lb (520-565 kg). Black Angus Cattle have a typical productive lifespan of 2-3 years and natural lifespan of 10-15 years.

Sitatunga (Tragelaphus spekii)
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Sitatunga compared to an average person

Sitatunga (Tragelaphus spekei) is the most aquatic antelope, with elongated, splayed hooves and versatile foot joints that enable it to move through the muddy ground. Although common, in African swamps and permanent marshes, the Sitatunga is also one of the most secretive and least known of great Africa as it spends most of its time within the muggy environment. It is a part of the spiral-horned antelope tribe, (the Bovidae family), which also includes Nyala and Kudu. The Sitatungas grow shaggy, waterproof fur, brown to chestnut in males and gray-brown to chocolate-brown in females, which partially blankets them when lurking slowly in the deepest and densest parts of the swamp.

Sitatungas have a shoulder height between 28.3”-45.7” (72-116 cm), body length from 42”-67” (106-170 cm), standing height of roughly 32.7”-53.5” (83-136 cm), and a body width of 9.4”-15” (24-38 cm). The horns of a Sitatunga are between 18”-35” (45.7-88.9 cm). Weights of Sitatunga vary between males and females with males weighing between 154-275 lb (70-125 kg) and females from 88-187 lb (40-85 kg). Sitatungas have a typical lifespan of 10-15 years in the wild and 17-22 years in captivity.

Nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus)
Scale illustration of an average Nilgai compared to a human

The Nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus), sometimes referred to as Blue Bull is a native to the Indian subcontinent and is the largest Asian antelope within the bovid family. Nilgais live in a flat, rising, dry savanna, lined with minimal forest and scrub. Requiring minimum shelter, the Nilgai avoids thick forests and is most common in central and northwestern India. Often in herds of 10 or less, each heard consists of all males or all females never a mix of both.

Nilgais have a shoulder height between 47.2”-59.1” (120-150 cm), body length from 68”-85” (172-217 cm), standing height of roughly 57.9”-72.4” (147-184 cm), and a body width of 17.3”-22.4” (44-57 cm). The horns of a Nilgai are between 6”-12” (15.2-30.5 cm). Weights of Nilgai vary between males and females with males weighing between 243-639 lb (110-290 kg) and females from 220-474 lb (100-215 kg). Nilgais have a typical lifespan of 12-13 years in the wild and 20-22 years in captivity.

Lesser Kudu (Tragelaphus imberbis)
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Lesser Kudu compared to an average person

The Kudu is a two spiral-horned antelope species in the Bovidae family: the Lesser Kudu and the Greater Kudu. The svelte Lesser Kudu (T. imberbis) is an enigmatic dweller in the lowland thorn forest of northeast and east Africa. The Lesser Kudu is marked vividly by 11 to 15 vertical white bands, large patches on the chest and throat, a nose chevron, and patches on the cheek. The legs are tawny and adorned with black and white stripes, the tail is bushy with a white underside and a black top, and the dorsal crest is small and upright. Both Kudu species feed on more than 100 different fruits, seeds, plants, vines, and scrubs.

Lesser Kudus have a shoulder height between 35.4”-43.3” (90-110 cm), body length from 49”-61” (125-154 cm), standing height of roughly 47.6”-58.3” (121-148 cm), and a body width of 12.6”-15.75” (32-40 cm). The horns of a Lesser Kudu are between 20”-28” (50.8-71.1 cm). Weights of Lesser Kudu vary between males and females with males weighing between 198-243 lb (90-110 kg) and females from 275-342 lb (125-155 kg). Lesser Kudus have a typical lifespan of 7-15 years in the wild and 15-20 years in captivity.
