I really haven't had time to think up anything amusing or interesting to post in here so going from a question from "moe," here are a few terms commonly thrown around in the dairy business:
weaners: calves that have recently been weaned.
heifer: young female bovine, usually not bred, but we also use this term for a cow that has only had one calf as well.
open heifer: young, unbred, female bovine
in: in heat
springer: bred heifer whose udder is developing
springing: the verb or adjective to refer to a bred heifer that is developing an udder
three banger: a cow that only has three quarters of her udder functioning. Sometimes these can give more than a full-uddered cow
cull: a bovine reject...headed to your nearest fast food restaurant or supermarket meat counter...usually as hamburger.
I know there are more but the laundry is calling, the baby is squalling and it is hard to think anyway when it is only about 10 degess out.
