Domesticated over 10,500 years ago, cows are currently found in every country across the globe yet there is still much to learn about their varied histories, geographies, and lives.

This network aims to gather researchers who have an interest in broader ‘bovine scholarship’ and more specific ‘cow scholarship’ to share, learn, and engage in knowledge creation with one another.
