In the first place, there are no such things as Male COWS, they are Bulls or Steers or just Cattle. Cows give milk. A young cow is called a Heifer until they are bred ten they are just Cows. We don't breed or milk female Moose, Well MOST of us don't anyway. Don't know about those Canadians though.

Hey, men named the animals, what more could you expect. They weren't that educated back then. Or now.

Since you girls don't seem to know, I guess the men will have to educate you - again. A female cow is only a heifer until the bull takes an interest in her and she drops her first calf, then she becomes a cow.
