The word 'boeuf' is a masculine singular noun. It may refer to the animal, as in the case of steer. Or it may refer to the meat, as in the case of beef. Or it may refer to a jam session, in its special, music-related use in the phrase 'faire du boeuf', or 'to have a jam session'.

Boeuf means 'beef' in English. This is a masculine noun, so the possessive would be 'mon' instead of 'ma'.

The English word "beef comes from the French "boeuf", a part of our heritage resulting from William the Conqueror's invasion in 1066, from which many names for meats derive from French, such as gammon from gambon and mutton literally from mutton (albeit with a French accent!). As to where the French word boeuf comes from is another question...

The Latin term is 'bovem', which passed into 14th century French as 'buef' which in modern French became 'boeuf'. This French word entered the English language as 'beef'.

It depends on what you mean by old. The word 'beef' was introduced into English during the French occupation of Great Britain starting in 1066. Its from the French word 'boeuf' meaning a cow or bull. Since the conquerors usually demanded their meat cooked and served to them, the French words for English animals came to mean their prepared meats. Thus English 'pork' is from French 'porc' which means 'pig', and English 'mutton' is from French 'mutton' meaning 'sheep'.
