    All life forms are related, it's just a matter of how closely and far down the tree of life you go to find their commonalities. Cows and deer are quite closely related though as they are both ruminants.

    Not all that closely , besides the fact they are hoffted mammals meaning they are close right to each other than they are to say a human , but besides that not all that close , cows are much closer to hippos , dolphins and whales than they are to deers.

    Yes. Both are even-toed ungulate mammals, or artiodactyls. Both are also ruminants, meaning they have s stomach that has evolved into several different compartments to help them digest food. In contrast, camels, pigs, and hippos are also artiodactyls, but they are not ruminants. That means deer and cows are more closely related to each other than either of them is to pigs, hippos, and camels.

    The problem is that which came first to live on this very earth. The grass came first or cow and deer came first. If we could disclose this secret then we would know whether both species were related or not.
