Matriliny/matrilocality is associated with an absence of cattle domestication.
The researchers used cattle domestication, milking, and leather working as proxies to examine the presence of cows in matrilineal/matrilocal societies. The analysis found that only milking co-occurred less often with matrilocality than would be expected in a random sample, although it had no correlation with matriliny. Correlated evolution further showed that milking destabilized the presence of matrilocality.
