What are the characteristics of a cow?

Answer

Cows are a domestic animal that are raised for milking, and for their meat. Some of the characteristics of cows are they are grazers, prey animals, they have good hearing, and they are very curious. They are herd animals, who get anxious when they are isolated, and will eventually group together if they are scattered. When you are around cows, use slow and deliberate movements, avoid loud noise and abusive actions, and do not approach isolated animals or a mother and her young.
