Mallory
حيوانات، ماشية، أنعام
Explanation:
The three options suggested above are pronounced HAYAWANAT, MASHIYA, and AN"AM. Let me explain.

HAYAWANAT is a generic term for animals, including humans.

MASHIYA is the term for grazing animals raised for meat, like the ones you enumerated.

AN"AM has the same meaning, but it is less used these days than it used to be.
