From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
   Bullock
      (1.) The translation of a word which is a generic name for
      horned cattle (Isa. 65:25). It is also rendered "cow" (Ezek.
      4:15), "ox" (Gen. 12:16).
     
         (2.) The translation of a word always meaning an animal of the
      ox kind, without distinction of age or sex (Hos. 12:11). It is
      rendered "cow" (Num. 18:17) and "ox" (Lev. 17:3).
     
         (3.) Another word is rendered in the same way (Jer. 31:18). It
      is also translated "calf" (Lev. 9:3; Micah 6:6). It is the same
      word used of the "molten calf" (Ex. 32:4, 8) and "the golden
      calf" (1 Kings 12:28).
     
         (4.) In Judg. 6:25; Isa. 34:7, the Hebrew word is different.
      It is the customary word for bulls offered in sacrifice. In Hos.
      14:2, the Authorized Version has "calves," the Revised Version
      "bullocks."
