I'm surprised the E2 dictionary doesn't include the full definition. "Bullock" also means a castrated bull, kinda like a eunuch for men. I had fun with this word in high school, when one of my teacher's name was Mr. Buhl...I enjoyed counting the veins on his neck.

Bul"lock (?), n. [AS. bulluc a young bull. See Bull.]

1.

A young bull, or any male of the ox kind.

Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old. Judges vi. 25.

2.

An ox, steer, or stag.
