  Ox - LoveToKnow 1911
OX, strictly speaking, the Saxon name for the males of domesticated cattle (Bos taurus), but in a zoological sense employed so as to include not only the extinct wild ox of Europe but likewise bovine animals of every description, that is to say true oxen, bison and buffaloes.
Remains of the wild ox or aurochs are abundant in the superficial deposits of Europe, Western Asia, and Northern Africa; those from the brick-earths of the Thames valley indicating animals of immense proportions.
In the Pleistocene of India occurs a large ox (Bos namadicus), possibly showing some affinity with the Bibos group, and in the same formation are found remains of a buffalo, allied to, but distinct from the living Indian species.

Ox, plural, oxen, domesticated cow or bull used for agricultural work as a draft animal (an animal that pulls a cart or wagon) or as a pack animal (an animal that carries cargo on its back).
In the 19th century the ox was the preferred draft animal for pulling covered wagons over pioneer trails across the western United States because the ox was stronger and less expensive to maintain than a horse, and could live off both grass and sage along the way.
The ox was slower than a mule by about 3 km (about 2 mi) per hour, but it pulled at a steady pace and would travel a greater distance than a mule during a full day of travel.

 Rural Heritage - What is an Ox?
An ox, to early American farmers who used the beast, was a mature castrated male belonging to the domestic cattle family, or genus Bos, most likely trained (like draft horses, some never got trained) to work, and at the end of its life inevitably used for meat.
In the United States a steer is not considered an ox until it is four years old, by which time it is considered large enough and mature enough for any work required of it.
To define the word "ox" as encompassing all animals in the bovine family would include a lot of species that are not even domesticated.
