Yes. If treated properly and humanely cattle can be considered a sustainable resource. This is especially true if the cows are used for dairy products as the milk would be constantly renewed over the course of the animals life. But even at farms where the cattle is being used for meat, the operation can be run on a sustainable basis.
The cows themselves are a sustainable resource. They breed at a fast enough rate to match the rate at which we eat them. However, they are NOT sustainable from a climate change perspective. Raising any amount of cows requires massive amounts of energy and water to feed and transport them. Unless these processes are made sustainable (through renewable energy use, for example), then cows are not a truly sustainable resource.
