Texas Longhorn cow with calf-- note to everyone: horns have nothing to do with sex for cattle; there are both polled (without horns) and horned cattle. Polled refers to any breed of livestock that has been selectively bred not to have horns. Note that horns are not the same as antlers; they differ in method of formation and characteristics. Antlers are more commonly found in males, but not always (e.g. Reindeer).
