The word "cattle" has to be used in the context that it refers to more than one "cow" or bovine. It is improper, not to mention insulting for some people, to use "cattle" as a singular noun instead of a plural noun.

For example: "The cattle was grazing in the pasture" is incorrect because this sentence assumes that "cattle" is in reference to one bovine. People who use this word in this context tend to feel that the plural form of "cattle" is "cattles," which is also incorrect. In this case, we could edit the word "cattle" to "cattle-beast," "bovine," or "cow." The latter term is the most commonly, yet improper word to use when directly referring to a domestic bovine which we do not know the age nor sex of, simply because most people (especially those who know everything bovine than most) see a cow as a mature female bovine that has had at least two calves. It is quite derogatory to call a bull a cow, for example!

The most proper way to use the word "cattle" is as follows:

  • "The cattle were grazing in the pasture"
  • "We had to run our cattle through the chute today."
  • "The cattle stampeded to safety."
  • "All types of cattle were at the fair."
  • "Those cattle were in my garden again!"
