I hope you enjoyed the cows coloring pages. Now I would like to give more information about cows.. Cows usually become adults at the age of 2 or 2.5 years. The age range of 2.5 - 3 is suitable for them to breed. An adult cow weighs around 500kg and can live up to 25-30 years. A cow is called a calf when it is born, then a heifer and a cow after giving birth. Its men are called ox, bull and bull. Although some features may vary according to races, in general, the structure of all races is almost the same.

Cow and its Characteristics

Cows, which are part of the artiodactyls, are herbivores. This animal therefore feeds mainly on plants. Cows weigh more than half a ton. They are thought to have been domesticated about 10,000 years ago in the Middle East. Cow breeding and use is part of cattle. Mankind uses cows to produce milk (which produces many products), and cows' meat is also consumed. On the other hand, the cow's body is also used to obtain leather. Beef is one of the most important foods in many cultures. Indeed, most of the cow's body is consumed by humans from head to tail. Bos taurus means cow in Latin. In biology, this name is generally used for cows.

When we look at the history of cows, many different cow species can be mentioned. When cow characteristics are evaluated, their feeding and hunting can also be mentioned. It is also possible to see that there are more herbivorous creatures when hunting and feeding in cows are investigated. These creatures, which constantly graze and produce milk, give a high rate of milk to their owners every day. Meat, milk and skin of healthy-fed cows can also be used in a quality way.

Cow Life

Cow life can be extended up to a maximum of 22 years. In order for cows of this age to live longer, climatic and nutritional conditions must be fully met. Cows may become unproductive due to old age after they have lived a healthy life for a certain period of time. If there is no reason such as illness, they die after 22 years.
