    They are in the same order because they are ungulates, i.e. hoofed-mammals. Cattle (bovids) and domestic pigs (suids) are even-toed ungulates so are in the order Artiodactyla. The odd-toed ungulates are the Perissodactlya.

    The following are also regarded as ungulates: elephants (Proboscidea), hyraxes (Hyracoidea) and mantees and dugongs (Sirenia).

    They are food and they would not exist if they were not food.

    Their hooves are a similarity. It's not restricted to just domesticated animals. They're part of the order artiodactyla.
