Thread Name: What do ranchers raise?
Subject: RE: What do ranchers raise?
Mudlark, I think that is why ox-oxen confused me. I doubt if many of the ranchers here in Canada use the term, I've never heard them do so. Most cattle have gone to market in the second year anyhow, many already as heifers. My wife's family raised cattle in Georgia. There, the word for an older steer was bullock. Webster's says it also means a young bull.
