Difference between cows for milk vs. for beef?


Question Posted Saturday January 17 2009, 9:20 pm

I'm trying to come up with a title for a painting of a cow. I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is a difference between cows that are raised for their milk versus cows raised for beef??

Like if you just look at a cow, can you tell which it is? Are the black and white ones for milk and the redish brown ones for beef? or what?
(my picture is a redish brown one)
Thanks!

well cows that are raised for milk are usually the typical black and white cows that have the sack where the milk is produced and cows for beef do not and are only one solid color like brown.
i hope this answers your question

Oh, and a note to the person below me, beef cattle aren't culled until they are at least two years of age.

Dairy cows come in all colors. Basically, a dairy cow is female, has had at least one calf, and is a milk producer for a farm. Beef cattle are raised to certain point then butchered. They usually live for maybe a year tops before they are butchered, and they never are bred if they are going to be butchered. So, if your painting is of a milk producing cow, it is a dairy cow. If it isn't, then you could really go with whatever you like.
