If they are dairy cows, then its called dairy farming. If they are for beef, then its called "beef farming" or, with extensive operations, "ranching," especially in the USA and Canada. Cattle raised on an operation where the main purpose is to fatten them up in preparation for slaughter are raised on a feedlot; the name for the way cattle are fattened up in the feedlot is called "finishing" or "fattening."
