In the context of the triangle trade
Cattle were traded in the triangle trade, but unlike most similar goods, it was traded from the old world to the new world. I chose, you guessed it, Encyclopedia Britannica, for my source for the Safavid. Cattle were used as work animals in the sugar fields and mines. They also became a staple food of pirates, who smoked the meat. Cattle not only helped helped with exploration by providing a source of food, but provided a more efficient way to harvest and collect resources.
