Friday Fun Farm Facts

The average calf weighs 55 to 100 lbs. at birth, depending on the breed.

An intact male bovine is called a bull. Once he is castrated, he is called a steer.

"Cow" is a generally accepted name for bovine, regardless of gender. However, a cow is technically a female bovine that has given birth. Until that time, she's called a heifer.

"Have a cow" is not a polite thing to say.
