How do you count a head of cattle?

1 cow = 1 head, it's just an expression.
Count their heads as they come through a gate so a focus is on the head. Anyone counting cattle could easily become distracted by the mass of body and head and easily lose track. Simply use the index finger, pinpoint each head as it comes through the gate and "count the head of cattle". Counting the body is much harder and easy to lose track.
