Cattle are domesticated ungulates that are raised for beef and dairy products (milk). Male cattle are called steers(if neutered) or bulls, and female cattle are called cows. The young member is called calf.

The last European wild cattle, called aurochs, were killed by poachers in Masovia, Poland in 1627.
