Cows[edit]

Should Category:Cows be merged in here? Railwayfan2005 (talk) 21:27, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

No, certainly not. The cow category is meaningful, cf. Category:Cattle by age and gender. Many users (laymen) mix up "cows" and "cattle", though. So Category:Cows regularly needs "clean-up work" (sorting out heifers, bulls, calves etc.), but that's the same issue as with other terms that are used in a rather non-specific way, e.g. excavators (several other types of construction machines can often be found there, especially loaders) and flowers (you can also find Pseudanthia images in there, e.g. of Euphorbia pulcherrima, which appears botanically incorrect). --:bdk: 23:44, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Agree with :bdk:: Commons categorisation goes deeper than on wikipedias. --Foroa (talk) 05:17, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Category:Bitches is notably absent, despite the presence of Category:Dogs :-) Railwayfan2005 (talk) 20:27, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
