From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    A cow and her calf were not to be killed on the same day (Lev.
    22:28; Ex. 23:19; Deut. 22:6, 7). The reason for this enactment
    is not given. A state of great poverty is described in the words
    of Isa. 7:21-25, where, instead of possessing great resources, a
    man shall depend for the subsistence of himself and his family
    on what a single cow and two sheep could yield.
