• second of the signs of the Asian zodiac, used in Persia = beef (on menus)

A cow (cattle) is the most common domesticated farm animal in the world. Cattle are used to feed most of the world, either through their milk production or for their meat (beef). They are also very powerful animals and can be used by people to pull objects. It's hard to imagine a world without cows as their hide (skin and hair) alone is used to make clothing, accessories, furniture and many other leather-based products. This emoji's stereotypical nick name is Bessie. Ask any child what a cow says, to which they will reply, "moo!"
