The aurochs is a great cattle, much larger than the breeds farmed by most human villagers. They are most closely related to certain West breeds of cattle such as the black angus and the wild zebu. Aurochs have been somewhat domesticated by the giant races, but humans mostly hunt them for food rather than taking the time to break them for milk and meat they can already get with the long-domesticated breed.
