1) A "cow" is a adult female of the bovine species.  Many of the animals in
 feed lot will be steers (castrated males) (the balance will typically be
heifers (a young female before she has had a calf).  A better term would be
"cattle."
2) "breeding" typically does not take place in a feedlot.  The purpose of
the feedlot is to fatten the cattle for slaughter.
