Fun Cow Facts
Did You Know?
Cows were first domesticated around 9000 BC. Soon after, cows were used as currency, up until around 1400 CE. Cows were like money on legs. One of the advantages of using cattle as currency is that it allows the seller to set a fixed price. It even created the standard pricing. For example, two chickens were traded for one cow as cows were deemed to be more valuable than chickens. In certain parts of Africa commodities (especially brides) are still priced in cows.
