what is service?

I became confused when I heard the word
“Service” used with these agencies:
Internal Revenue Service
Postal Service
Telephone Service
Cable TV Service
Civil Service
State, City, County & Public Service
Customer Service
This is NOT what I thought service meant.
But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to Service a few cows.
BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those Service agencies are doing to us.

One that also winds me up is when we are referred to as customers by DWP, IR etc
