According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, all modern domestic cattle are believed to belong to the species Bos Taurus (European breeds such as Shorthorn and Jersey) or Bos indicus (zebu breeds such as Brahman) or to be crosses of these two (such as Santa Gertrudis).

That all depends on what your definition of "cow" is. If you're talking about the domesticated bovine, then colloquially, a "cow" would also called a bovine, an animal, or a cattle-beast. Specifically, a cow is a mature female bovine, also called a dam or a "momma" or "mom" when talking about a calf's mother.
