> RV: I agree but Shankaracharya does not clarify what uksha and rshabha are.
> According to Haridas Sastry (Review of Beef in Ancient India), uksha and
> rishabha refer to medicinal herbs of the same shape still found in India.

Please re-read the passage that Vidyasankar quoted where it is clearly
stated -
ukshA = secanasamarthaH pungavaH
RshabhAs =  tato'py adhika-vayAH

In other words ukshA is like a teenaged bull, Rshabha is older.
