Guinness names the world’s tallest cow ever

It’s official. At 6-foot-4, Blosom the Holstein is the world’s tallest cow ever. That’s the determination made by Guinness World Records, which had previously named the female Holstein the world’s tallest living cow.The new record was announced on June 25, 2015.


Blosom lived on a farm in Orangeville, Illinois. Her owner, Patty Meads-Hanson, got Blosom when the cow was just eight weeks old. Blosom was 13 years old when she died on May 26.

During her life, she was the official "greeter" for Memory Lane Crafting Retreat, a retreat situated on the farm.
A post on Blosom’s Facebook page said the cow “was called to graze in a more glorious pasture.”
Meads-Hanson found the cow down in a pasture, her left leg in “a position that wasn’t normal,” according to a post on the Facebook page.

Two veterinarians worked in the pouring rain to try to lift the cow but they were ultimately unsuccessful. Blosom died after suffering a leg injury.

“Her injury appeared to happen when she laid down, slipping in the mud, and damaging a ligament in her hip, and would never be able to stand. I had to make that hard decision - I wouldn't let her suffer. It's the last act of kindness you can do for an animal you love, but it sure is hard,” Meads-Hanson wrote on Facebook.

That's not true cos they've not been to Mr West Germany's Cattle and Ram Ranch in Daura. That's one thing he's pretty good at- raising cows.
