Quote:
{6:143} [They are] eight mates - of the sheep, two and of the goats, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Inform me with knowledge, if you should be truthful."

I suggest,
{6:143} [Cattle are] eight pairs - of the sheep, two and of the goats, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or what the wombs of the two females have embodied? Inform me with knowledge, if you have been truthful."

Quote:
{6:144} And of the camels, two and of the cattle, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when God charged you with this? Then who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about God to mislead the people by [something] other than knowledge? Indeed, God does not guide the wrongdoing people."

Good understanding of بغير علم in this context.

I suggest,
{6:144} And of the camels, two and of the cows, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or what the wombs of the two females have embodied? Or were you witnesses when God commended you with this? Then who is more unjust than one who has invented a lie about God to mislead the people by [something] other than knowledge? Verily, God does not guide the wrongdoing folk."
