"cattle" is  the correct term[1].  I was mistaken in my original email,
"bovine" is a broader term that includes other animals as well as domestic
cattle{3].  In answer to your question, "cattle" refers only to domestic
cattle, the term is not used to for other animals.

According to the wiki: "A facility where animals are bred, usually to sell
them. This tag is mainly intended for pet breedings, but it can be used for
any kind of animals. You should use this tag if breeding is the primary
activity of the facility, otherwise see Breeding as secondary activity
 There is nothing in that opening line, nor in the rest of the wiki page,
about using the tag for places where animals grow up.
