This all depends on what location you're referring to. Are you asking about how many cows are slaughtered in the world, or in a specific country like the USA? And are you asking about this on a per-day basis or per-year? Please be more specific.

This is an ambiguous question that is impossible to answer because of a few important unknowns: Location, location, location. Hence the question is impossible to answer in a truthful, factual matter.

Well I don't know about per day but 45,000 are slaughtered a year! Unbelievable!

As often as possible and as often as there are cows that are needing his services. That said, a bull can breed as many as 2 to 10 cows (or more) per day, depending on how many cows are in heat on that day.

Yes, Muslims eat beef of cows and buffaloes slaughtered per Islam religion teachings.

It is impossible to tell because average consumption is based on the amount of meat or beef consumed per day (or year), not "how many cows [that] are eaten...[per] day." Thus the question has no merit no matter how you try to look at it.

This question is impossible to answer because the number of cows per farm differs, as well as number of cows on farm per day, since cows that were milked one day wouldn't be milked the next or vice versa because either they'd be culled and sold, come down with a sickness, be of the time to be dried up before calving, or start giving milk as heifers or (for older cows) after calving, etc.

Assuming each cow consumes the same amount per day. The farmer has enough for: 30 cows*28 days = 840 cow days or 840 cows for 1 day Therefore he can feed 840 cow*days/35days = 24 cows for 35 days. 30 cows - 24 cows = 6 cows The farmer must get rid of 6 cows.

One web site suggests 2.6 million cattle are slaughtered in the UK every year. That works out to some 7000 per day. However, the UK also imports beef from the Netherlands, Germany, Uruguay, Argentina, South America, and elsewhere around the world. An analysis of supermarket purchases suggest about half the beef consumed in the UK is imported, which would raise the total number of cows eaten per day a bit over ten thousand. The population of the UK is 61 million. Not all of those 61 million will eat beef every day, but what is ten thousand cows divided among 61 million people? There is about 400 lbs of meat per cow, or 4 million pounds of meat per day, which works out to about 1 oz per person per day. That is probably pretty accurate, considering that some of those 61 million are vegetarians, and some don't eat beef every day. A nice 7 oz steak or hamburger per person per week--the figure we derived (10,000/day) is probably pretty close.

Dairy cows eat 2% to 5% of their body weight in dry matter. Translating that into as-fed, dairy cows can eat 75 - 100 lbs of feed per day. Lactating dairy cows typically eat 50% more than a dry dairy cow.

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.

This will depend solely on the individual cow's ability to produce. Some cows will produce 48 kg of milk per day while others may give only 30 kg of milk per day.

There are a variety of cows, so you should be more specific in asking this question. Most cows have a range from 6 to 12 gallons of milk per day. So if you just want an average than 8 gallons per day, 30 days per month, 6 months is 1,440

User Avatar

Cows that milk less than 12 liters a day are usually sorted out. There are cows that milk over 30 liters a day. In a year the U.S. average was 8800 liters per year per cow. Cows will most often milk for 3 or 4 lactations (periods of giving milk) sometimes as many as 10 lactations. There are cows that have produced over 100 000 liters of milk in their life.

Dairy cows have to be milked twice daily.

User Avatar

they have three or maybe five

User Avatar

They eat about the same. Lactating cows tend to eat 4% of their body weight DM per day, whereas a bull will eat the average of about 2.5% of is body weight DM per day. Since bulls are heavier than cows, the total daily intake is about the same.

No. Dairy cows have much larger udders than beef cows do. A dairy cow has been selected to produce more milk than what she can feed her calf to meet the farmers' demands for more milk to be produced per cow per day.

User Avatar

Cows average between 8-9 gallons of milk per day depending on weather. The highest producing cows at the beginning of their lactation can produce 15-17 gallons of milk per day. Other factors weigh heavily on the amount of milk given such as breed and genetics. Milk contains what in dairy farming is referred to as components (fat, protein, lactose and other minerals such as calcium) cows with higher components tend to have lower volumes of milk. Traditionally Jersey cows have higher components and less volume than Holstein cows.

About 100 steaks per average cow.

I believe it's usually 0.25 cows per acre or more for the arid areas to 0.5 or 1 cows per acre in the more lusher areas of Texas. Check with your local extension office for more information on stocking rates.

It's really hard to say, as it depends on what diet the animal is on. In most cases, cows can pass gas up to 20 or more times per day.

Tryin' to trick us up, eh? If four cows make four cans in four days, that means tha each cow makes 1/4 of a can a day. (Day 1: four cows, 1/4 can apiece, end of day: 1 can.. Day 2: Four cows, 1/4 can apiece, end of day : 1 can, total of 2 cans, etc etc) Therefore, eight cows, assuming they produce at the same rate, would make 2 cans per day (1 cow = 1/4 can, remember?) So Eight cows would take....drumroll...4 days to make eight cans.

It takes between 85 and 95 to produce 500 gallons of milk. Each cow produces approximately 6 gallons of milk per day.
