cattle

cattle

A generic term for ruminant animals. Domesticated cattle were used by the Hebrews in many ways: as a food source (1Kgs 4:23), as sacrificial offerings (1Kgs 8:63), to pull carts (Num 7:3), as pack animals (1Chr 12:40), for threshing (Deut 25:4), and, together with sheep and goats, for milk products and dung.
