I agree with Greg. Oxen are defintely used by most (nearly all) Genertelan cultures pull their plows - at least where plows are used (there were several hoe-using cultures in Peloria at the Dawn, although I am not sure they still exist). In Pamaltela I am pretty sure that there are several hoe-using cultures.

The only possible exception is modern Loskalm, which may well use the horse-collar.
