No. A bull is the opposite sex of a cow, and both sexes are of the species known as the Domesticated Bovine (Bos taurus and Bos indicus). A bull is the intact male that is used to breed cows, and a cow is a mature female bovine that gives birth to offspring called calves after being bred by a bull.

A bull is the male form of a cow.

There is no such thing as a "bull cow." Either you are talking about a bull, or a "cow" which would be a weanling heifer. As such this all depends on the breed of that animal.

There is no such thing as a "female cow" nor a "male cow." "Cow" refers to the female of any species including the domestic bovine, and is not a name of a specific animal. The male of a domestic bovine is called a bull, and the female (mature) a cow. To answer your question, it is the bull that is the larger of the two in most cases, such as within breeds and when the bull and the cow are the same age. But, if you compare between breeds, such as if the bull is a Dexter and the cow a Holstein, or if the bull is much younger than the cow, then the opposite may be true.

Yes. A cow is the opposite sex of a bull within the same species.

Yes. For one, there's no such thing as a "bull cow," and two, a cow is never a bull nor is a bull ever a cow. Cows are mature female bovines, whereas bulls are intact male bovines. It's either or, not one with the other.

No. Also, there is no such thing as a "bull cow." It's either a bull (an intact male bovine used for breeding) or a cow (a mature female bovine that has had at least two calves), but never a "bull cow."
