Cattle cow It’s not a phase it’s no a hobby it’s not for everyone poster. To complicate matters is the ability of cows to mate with closely related species. Even breeding animals exist not only between taurine and zebu (eg sanga, Bos taurus africanus), but also between one or both of these groups and other members of the genus Bos-yaks ( banteng, and gaur. Hybrids such as beefalo even between taurine and with species of bison, some authors initially considered them to be part of the genus Bos.
The hybrid origins of some species may not be clear – for example, the Dwarf Lulu genetic test, only taurine in Nepal, was found to be a cross between taurine, zebu, and yak. However, domestic cattle have not been successfully crossbred with distant related species such as water buffalo or buffalo.
