They get killed and butchered.

Cows rarely become steaks, normally young steers and heifers become steaks, depending on age and weight these animals may go to a wheat field in Kansas or a grass pasture in Texas. After a few months and a few trips across country these animals then may go to a feedlot. After the animal reaches a certain weight these animals then go to slaughter house after which they become steaks.
