These distinctions are well established in regard to domestic animals of this genus. When wild animals of this kind are spoken of, ox is often applied both to the male and the female. The name ox is never applied to the individual cow, or female, of the domestic kind. Oxen may comprehend both the male and the female.

Well thanks Unity...hanging out on here is liken to getting a BA at some esteemed College. Now why would anybody want to try to cook an Ox? Dont you think it tend to a little tough since it has built up it's muscles pulling all them Pilgrims over the mountains and such stuff? I'm thinking it might be sorta like trying to cook a Clydesdale. Straighten out my view here please.

Sounds like your cooker could handle a Clydesdale.
