Cattle for milking and meat were brought by the European settlers. Herds of cattle were in Canada by 1824. Today, cattle farming is a big part of the economy in Saskatchewan.
A herd of cattle is a group of cows.
Cattle are raised on land that is not suitable for growing crops on. They graze the land and provide us with nutritious food. The farmer moves them from one pasture to another to prevent over-grazing, which is excessive grazing that will cause damage to the grassland.
This bull and cow are grazing in a pasture.
