What was bred to make a cow?
A cow already exists as is, since it is a female bovine that has already had a calf. But, in the facts of evolution, another bull and a cow had to have mated to produce this "cow."
A cow. If she's not bred but ready to breed, she's an open cow. If she's bred or pregnant, she's a bred cow.
Not humanly possible. You can only get a cow if a cow gets bred by a bull and gives birth to hopefully a heifer calf that will grow into a cow.
A cow that has NEVER had a calf in her lifetime is called a Heifer. A cow that has not had a calf YET is a heavily pregnant or heavy-bred, or a short-bred or long-bred cow. A cow that has not had a calf during a calving season is called a barren cow, an open cow, a cystic cow, a cull cow, a meat/slaughter cow, a poor cow, a free-loader, etc.
A bred cow or a pregnant cow, or, in the dairy industry, just a cow. In sale barns, if she has a calf at side, she is also referred to as a 3-in-1 or a three-fer or suckling bred cow. If she's lactating, like in a beef or dairy herd, then she's called a nursing bred cow, lactating bred cow or bred lactating/milking dairy cow. If she's not nursing or lactating, she's called a dry… Read More
A bred or pregnant cow.
A cow is made inside another cow in the form of a calf, which is what it is birthed as from the cow, raised up as a calf and grown into a heifer than a cow. Cows, when bred to bulls, make calves. That's how cows (and "cows") are made.
No. A pregnant cow is called pregnant cow or a bred cow.
A cow will always consume 2.5% of her body weight in dry matter ration no matter what she's fed. For this question we will need the moisture content and the weight of this bred cow for us to be able to make an accurate estimation as to how much she will eat in as-fed lb/day values.
A heavily pregnant cow, or a long-bred cow. Or, a cow that is expecting soon.
No. A Hereford cow will only give birth to a Hereford-Limousin cross calf if bred to a Limousin bull. Only a Limousin cow can give birth to a Limousin calf--IF she's bred to a Limousin bull. Just like a Hereford cow can only give birth to a Hereford calf if bred to a Hereford bull. Otherwise, she too (referring to the Limousin cow) can give birth to Hereford-Limousin-cross calf if bred to a Hereford bull.
It's possible, but if you catch that milk-thieving cow right away and separate her from the herd to wean her from doing that (or just outright cull her) the open cow shouldn't produce, or rather continue producing milk.
A cow that is close to calving, and is far along in her gestation period.
Most likely, yes. Did you know that there's a breed called a Beefalo? This breed is a result of breeding an American bison with a domestic cow. So if an American bison can be bred with a domestic bovine and produce viable offspring, then there's nothing wrong with breeding an African Buffalo with a domesticated cow. Make sure, though, that you breed an African Buffalo cow with a domestic-bred bull that has good calving-ease numbers.
A bred cow is just a shorter word for a cow that is pregnant, or one that has not returned to her normal cycling ~21 days after getting inseminated naturally or artificially, no matter if she has been confirmed pregnant by rectal palpation, ultrasound, blood tests or an ELIZA test. Bred cows are also called brood cows.
Yes and no. Oxen are cattle bred to pull carts and ploughs; cows are bred for their milk.
The cow was bred on December 26, 2008, since the average gestation period for all cows is 285 days long.
Holsteins were bred to produce more milk than other cows just like Saint Bernards were bred to be large.
When palpating a cow to check if she is pregnant, the vet or farmer will either call her "open" (not bred), or bred.
If she hasn't been bred yet, she's still a heifer. If she's bred, she'd be a bred heifer. If she has calved (which occurs in most heifers at around the age of 24 months), she would be called a first-calf heifer. But to make things simple, at that age, the name of a 1-2 year old "cow" is a heifer. However, if that "cow" is actually male, not female, then if castrated he would be… Read More
Only if she has given birth to a calf before being bred again and continuously milked since then, then yes. But, if that cow has given birth to a calf, was dried up for some reason before being bred again, no.
Milk secretion cells and mammary glands allow the cow to begin to produce milk. When the cow or heifer is bred, the levels of progesterone and estrogen drop causing the mammary glands begin to function.
That really depends if she's a purebred registered animal or just a commercial cow. It also depends if she's bred, bred with calf at side, open, or if you're even taking about specifically a cow at all, but the general term of a "cow." But I digress. A good purebred prized cow can fetch upwards of $60,000 or more at a dispersal sale. Commercial bred cows can go for as much as $1500 to $2000… Read More
A cow should be bred at least 45 to 60 days after giving birth.
Where? A cow is a cow, the same genus everwhere, but there are many breeds with different uses. Some, such as holsteins, are bred for milk. Belted Galloways are bred for milk and meat. There are hundreds of cattle breeds.
This would only be done through the use of artificial insemination, and for an entire cow herd, not just one lonely cow. One cow will be bred to one sire, another couple cows will be bred to another sire, etc.
The embryo is formed when the sperm from a bull attaches itself to the egg or ovum of the cow. The embryo is formed not only from the cow being bred naturally, but also when she is artificially inseminated.
Depends on what size the cow is prior to being bred and how big the calf is when it reaches term.
Once a year.
Yes: to produce milk.
Some, but not all. Spotting in cattle is a recessive trait and is kept by breeding spotted with spotted, regardless if a bull is bred to his daughters or a cow is bred to an unrelated bull. See the related link below for more info.
A cow can be bred 45 to 80 days (or a little longer) after she has calved and during her heat cycle which is once every ~17 to 24 days. Heifers can be bred by the time they reach between 9 and 18 months of age, (preferably 15 months of age or older) and/or weigh 60% of the average mature cow-herd weight, since some heifers may not be able to be bred until they're ~20… Read More
They HAVE to be healthy, no exceptions! Any cow that is ill or diseased shouldn't even have a calf, and if they are in calf this illness will compensate the calf's health in much more bad ways than good. An ill cow is not suitable to be bred, and it is just simply not a great idea to breed an unhealthy cow.
Get bred and produce a calf.
No. Twins are determined by the cow herself, not the bull. It's still unclear as to what causes the act of twinning, even in humans.
In the same frame time as for a cow that is being naturally bred: between 45 and 80 days after parturition.
What part of "unmated" cattle are you referring to? Are you referring to females, or males or both? It's hard to tell what you're asking, but I'll do my best. An "unmated" young female, or a young female bovine that has not been bred yet is a heifer. A bull that has never bred a cow or heifer before is often referred to as a virgin bull. A cow that has calved but hasn't been… Read More
A cow will give milk when it produces its first calf. Depending on when it is bred, a heifer will be around 24 months old when it has its first calf and becomes a cow.
Cattle are generally bred in fall for spring calves, but they cycle regularly(an average of every 21 days) throughout the season if not bred.
I should hope so! If she's fertile and is bred at the right time and is bred at the right time, then yes.
The act of conception for the purpose of producing offspring. A cow can only conceive if she's bred to a bull, not another cow. See the related question below to find out how it's done.
A weigh-up cow is a cow that is late bred or poor-producing cow (one that has obviously been culled from a breeding herd) that is purchased to be fed to increase her weight. She is then sold afterwards for slaughter.
No. A cow can be bred or get pregnant at any time of the year.
In rare cases, yes, but most of the time, no.
Nothing - cattle and sheep cannot be cross-bred.
Once every 11 to 12 months, accounting for the period of rest a cow gets after being bred (which will last from 2 to 3 months), and the gestation period for that cow after she has conceived.
AI is a method for a dairy cow to get pregnant. She should catch (or get bred) within a day or two after being AI'd.
Friesians are black and white and produce lots of milk Herefords are brown, much furrier and are bred for meat
It depends on what the owner wants to use it for. Some cows might have been specifically bred to better on one of these jobs.
Her tail will be held out behind her and her back will be slightly arched. Cows that have been bred within 24 hours will have a bit of a kink in their tail. Also, waiting at least 21 days after breeding season or after the suspected time she has been settled to see if that cow goes back into heat is another good way of telling of a cow has been bred or not. Preg-checking… Read More
Kind of. But the real deal is that a cow cannot nor will not lactate (in most cases) unless she has given birth to a calf. Being bred doesn't automatically guarantee that a cow is going to be producing milk right away, because a bred cow can abort her calf, or absorb the embryo inside her and become open again. She must have given birth to a calf (or, have a complete gestation) in order… Read More
