Dairy cattle (also known as dairy cows) are beef cows bred for the ability to produce large amounts of milk from which milk products are produced. Historically, there was no difference between dairy cattle and beef cattle, with the same stock being mostly used for the production of both meat and milk. Today, the bovine industry is more advanced and the majority of dairy cattle were raised to produce large quantities of milk. Dairy cows can be found either in herds or dairy farms, where dairy farmers own, maintain, feed, and extract milk from them, or on commercial farms. Herd sizes differ according to the custom of the landholders and the social structure around the world. The United States has an estimated 9 million cows, with an average herd size of 120 cows, in about 75,000 dairy herds.
