In Medieval and Tudor times a yeoman with a few acres is likely to have kept a pair of cows that could produce calves, milk and meat as well as being used for draught work. The word “oxen” usually meant castrated males, but it can also be applied to working females. Working cows are possibly more appropriate than males for the small farmhouses, such as Pendean farmhouse.
