The dataset is additional materials to the article of the same name. The work is devoted to the description and analysis of bone pathologies of modern non-working cattle as part of zooarchaeological studies on the problem of identifying the working use of cattle in antiquity based on pathological markers. The dataset contains photographs of the microdistrict of the Karagaily-Ayat river valley, a system of grazing and keeping livestock, as well as all identified pathologies. The same pathology is given in several images to demonstrate its variability depending on the sex of the animal and the front or hind limb.
