Cattle Drive--- A journey in which cowboys herded cattle north to the railroad depots in the 1800's
It is not really known when the term "cattle" was started to be used as a reference to domestic bovines. In the old days, the word "cattle" was not in reference to bovines at …all, but rather an Old French term, "catel" (derived from the Latin word "caput") for moveable personal property such as livestock of any kind. The word is closely related to "chattel," which means a unit of personal property, and "capital," in an economic sense. The term replaced the earler Old English "feoh" which means "cattle, property." In older English sources such as from the King James Version of the Bible, "cattle" refers to livestock, as opposed to "deer" which refers to wildlife. "Wild cattle" may refer to feral cattle or undomesticated species of the genus Bos, such as the wild Aurochs or Celtic Longhorns. Today, cattle is a term (a plural noun, to be precise) that refers to a collection of domestic bovines, regardless of age, sex, breed or any other reference.
