Welcome to Bovine ...

Although we found mention of Bovine during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Bovine was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Bovine to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Bovine, please Contact Us.


We aren't confident of the location of Bovine, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Bovine might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel west from Bovine, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

We believe that Bovine would be found within the (435) area code.

Communities Also Named Bovine ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are 4 communities that are also named Bovine - they are located in Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan and South Dakota.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Bovine and then turned east". While Bovine could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Bovine as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Bovine could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bovine) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bovine. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from BovineOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bovine. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.4335, Longitude: -113.6974    
<4>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
