With a general interest in how we as humans treat cattle and have placed such a high importance on them for our current and future lives, I am intrigued by the influence of cattle on current American culture. This study provides an evaluation of dairy and beef cattle farmers in Wayne County, Ohio, and their self-defined labels in terms of occupation and relationship to a herd. The following is an exploration of the economic, social, and ecological dimensions of raising cattle, and ultimately how cattle can be an influence on humanity. The research aims to determine how we place value on such a common animal, as well as define the value of cattle in modern society, through a focus on Ohio farmers.
