The cow is an artiodactyl quadruped, with elongated legs of 2 fingers each ending in hooves. It has a short and wide neck, with a hanging dewlap.
The muzzle is broad and thick with full holes. The head has two small horns or antlers on each side. The tail is long and ends in hairs.
Cows eat mainly grass, herbs, and plants. They also feed on stems, seeds, leaves, and roots.
Humans raise them on cattle ranches, and they feed on a compound based on sugar cane and other nutrients for their sustenance; they also provide wheat, corn, oats, barley, sorghum, tubers such as beets, and potatoes for food. In its natural habitat, it can graze up to 8 hours a day.
The cow is a ruminant animal because it eats in 2 stages. First, it consumes the food, and in the second, it ruminates; this consists of regurgitating what has been ingested and already semi-digested to undo it.
It is believed that it moves its jaw 40,000 times a day, 10,000 times to chew, and 30,000 times to ruminate.
The females can reproduce at any time of the year, thanks to the fact that they have a fertility cycle every 21 days, entering the rut in a time that varies from 6 to 30 hours.
They usually have one or two offspring per litter; their gestation period varies between 282 and 292 days, during which time the calf is born.
The calves have a lactation period of approximately ten months, depending on the breed of animal. These animals usually live for more than 15 years and can live up to 20 or 25 years.
