The more experienced bulls will. And usually yes, though sometimes if there's more than one bull around...

Do male cows have a cervix?

Male cows don't exist. There are only cows and bulls, no female cows, male cows, male bulls, female bulls. With that said, only cows (which are, by definition, mature female bovines that have given birth to at least one calf) are ones that have cervixes, bulls do not. Bulls have their major reproductive organs close to or mostly outside their body, cows have theirs inside.


How often do cows and bulls mate?

Typically a ranch's breeding period occurs only once a year. However, some ranches opt to have two breeding seasons a year, with a different herd of cows per breeding season, but using the same bulls for each breeding period. A typical cow should only be bred once to be settled, but if there are more than one bull in the herd at the time, she can be ridden more than once. Bulls, on the other hand, are the more sexually active of the cowherd, and will be very active breeding anywhere from 25 to 50 females in a breeding season.


Can a bull and cow reproduce?

Yes, of course! Cows and bulls are not separate species, they are names of different sexes within the species Bos primigenius taurus or indicus, and can indeed mate with each other, provided the cow is ready to do so. A bull will only mate with a cow when the cow is in heat or estrus, and not during any other time. Bulls are mature male intact bovines, and cows are mature female bovines.


Do bulls have teats?

Yes, just like human males have teats and cows and heifers have teats. The only difference between the teats of bulls and cows is that the teats of a bull are non-functional.


How many cows do bulls mate in a day?

It depends on the bull. Some may be able to breed up to 5 cows per day, others maybe only 1 or 2. It all depends on how receptive cows are and whether they're in standing heat at the time. A lot of breeding occurs at night, so you may see the bull breeding only a couple cows during the day.

Does a head of cattle equal one cow?

Not necessarily. It means cattle in a collective term, not cows as in only cows with calves, or dry cows or pregnant cows or bulls or steers or heifers or whatever. When a cattleman says that he has 50 head of cattle, he means cows, bulls, steers, heifers and calves, not just the cows themselves.

What is bigger cow or cattle?

Cows are cattle, as they are females only, while bulls are male cattle. Therefore, you cannot say for certain which is larger as one is a grouping, the other a specific gender of the species. Bulls are usually larger than cows, especially if referring to cows and bulls of the same breed, and not between breeds.
