Cows have 32 permanant teeth. They have 8 incisors on the botton jaw and no teeth on the top jaw, which is called the dental pad.

NOTE: Cow's teeth are different from ours. On the top front, cows have a tough pad of skin instead of teeth. They have 8 incisors on the bottom front and 6 strong molars on the top and bottom of each side to grind their food. Cows have a total of 32 teeth.
