Cattle Domestication

The cattle is said to be domesticated around 8,000 B.C. It was domesticated in the Near East, between the Mediterranean Sea and Iran.
The tribe that domesticated cattle were called the Nubians.
The Nubians domesticated the cattle for meat, dairy products, plowing, hides, and draft animals.
I believe that the cattle got smaller and nicer when it was domesticated.
One fact that I thought was interesting is that the domestication was thought to be done separately on every continent. Did you know that some people consider cattle as the oldest form of wealth. One thing that I know is that when a king died the people slaughtered an entire herd of cattle, and used their skulls to arrange a neat circle around the outside of the tomb. Bet you didn't know that.
