World’s Tallest Cow: Blosom is the latest record holder in the animal kingdom. She measures 6 feet 4 inches tall and 2,000 pounds. She will appear in the 2016 edition of the Guinness World Records book. PETA, a group that advocates for animal rights, has sent its condolences to Hanson and her family.
Blosom is a rural celebrity
Blosom was once a barnyard misfit who couldn’t give birth. She stood six feet, two inches tall when she died at age 13 after suffering an irreparable leg injury. She’ll be remembered for her unusual size in the 2016 Guinness Book of World Records.
Danniel is the world’s tallest cow
Danniel the steer weighed 2,300 pounds and was 6 feet 4 inches tall. He lived at the Lost Coast Hay Farm in Eureka, California. He was a Holstein steer that was raised by Ken and Ann Farley. Danniel was a rare find because the average cow is around 4 and a half feet tall. In fact, Danniel measured 6 feet 4 inches, which is more than twice the height of an average cow. Despite this, he was not recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. A veterinarian said Danniel had a calcium deficiency.
Knickers is the world’s tallest cow
Knickers is an Australian cow that stands 6 feet 4 inches tall. He towers over all the other cows in photographs and videos. However, the size of the cow is actually an optical illusion. Because the cows surrounding him are small, it makes Knickers look much taller than he actually is. The world’s tallest steer is Bellino, but he’s only a couple inches taller than Knickers.
Mount Katahdin was the previous record holder
Mount Katahdin stood at 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) tall with a girth of more than 13 feet. She was the tallest cow in the world from 1906 to 1910. However, she was only the world’s tallest cow for a short while because a smaller cow, named Blosom, surpassed her.
