There are roughly 29 million cattle, colloquially cows, in Australia. Cattle are domesticated bovine farm animals that are raised for their meat or milk, for their hides, or for draft purposes. Australia is one of the world's most efficient producers of cattle and the world's third largest exporter of beef. Depending on the breed, mature bulls weigh 1,000–4,000 pounds, and cows 800–2,400 pounds. Males retained for beef production are usually castrated to make them more docile on the range or in feedlots. Cattle feed primarily by grazing on pasture, but in modern farming their diet is ordinarily supplemented with prepared animal feeds.
