The O'Meara What do ranchers raise? (59* d) RE: What do ranchers raise? 28 May 03


Thank you all for your concise and insightful answers to my query. As near as I can tell,then, ranchers raise cattle, which means property, but refers to a whole buch of kine, (which means cows,) but is a word nobody uses anymore, so they're called cows individually except for the bulls, which are anatomically modified into steers, or oxen, except in western Canada, where they are mules instead of oxen.

ps Or am I wrong here?
