When I want to say there are a number of farmers who are owning a number of cows respectively, without knowing how many cows each farmer is owning, does the phrase
accurately reflect my intention?
Re: farmers' cows
(The) farmers' cows does mean the cows of more than one farmer.
If you really wish to indicate that a number of farmers own a number of cows than you will have to say 'A number of farmers own a number of cows'.
