How do cows age?

Cows live through 5 main life stages:

  1. From birth to 6 months – baby life stage, when a cow is called a calf
  2. From 6 month to 1 year – teenage life stage, a female cow is called a heifer, a non-castrated male is a bull calf, and a castrated male is a steer
  3. From 1 year to 10 years – a cow reaches its adulthood. Females are called cows, non-castrated males - bulls, and castrated males - steers
  4. From 10 years to 12 years - aged cows
  5. From 12 years and older – elderly cows

The oldest cow recorded by the Guinness World Records was Big Bertha, who died at the age of 43 years and 9 months (which equals 185 human years!)
