A cow is the female of the "cattle" species, the most common type of large domesticated hoofed animals. The male of the species is called a bull. The cattle species is a member of the subfamily Bovinae, or "Bovine," and are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, such as butter, cheese and yogurt, and as draft animals for pulling carts and plows. Other cattle products include leather and even manure for fertilizer or fuel. In some countries cattle are considered sacred, such as India, where cows are venerated within the Hindu religion because according to Vedic scriptures, they are to be treated with the same respect as one's mother because of the nourishing milk that they provide. It is estimated that there are 1.3 billion cattle in the world today.
