Milkmaid Cow toby jug - Schafer & Vater circa 1925

Milkmaid Cow toby jug produced by Schafer & Vater of Rudolstadt, Germany, circa 1925. Cattle are large, domesticated, bovid ungulates widely kept as livestock. Mature female cattle are called cows and mature male cattle are bulls. Young female cattle are called heifers, young male cattle are oxen or bullocks, and castrated male cattle are known as steers. Cattle are commonly raised for meat, for dairy products, and for leather. As draft animals, they pull carts and farm implements. In India, cattle are sacred animals. Small breeds such as the miniature Zebu are kept as pets. This milkmaid is on her way to the barn to milk a few cows and get milk for today's meals.
