This study was carried out to determine drained regions of head superficial and deep veins in Holstein bovine. For this purpose, a total of sight heads of Holstein bovine of both sexes obtained from slaughterhouse in Konya were used. Following the conventional anatomical technics to heads, blue coloured latex were injected into the external jugular veins. After that, all the materials was dissected. The external jugular vein was formed by joining the maxillary and linguofacial veins at the caudal level of mandibular angle. The linguofacial vein was formed by joining the glandular, lingual and facial veins The intraorbital and descending palatine vein directly joined the deep facial vein. It was determined that the maxillary i/em formed by joining the caudal auricular, ventral masseteric, superficial temporal veins and pterygoid plexus at the medial level of parotid gland It was observed that the pterygoid plexus composed of the palatinal, pharyngeal, inferior alveolar, deep temporal, masseteric, temporomandibular articular, buccal and pterygoid veins.
