I hope nobody thinks that Farmer John is going to tell his neighbor, Farmer Billy Bob "I think I'll go out to the barn and conjugate/couple Old Bessie and Boss."  They might say it about a cow and a bull in a dictionary somewhere, but in real life you'd hear "to mate" or "to breed".  "To couple" and "to pair" are often used when choosing to animals to pull a wagon, plow, etc.  Even "conjugate" refers to putting two animals in the same yoke, although I can't imagine a farm worker ever saying such a thing.
