EUREKA, Calif. (AP) – Holy cow! A giant, one-ton Holstein steer who loves to eat bread and romps like a puppy at a Northern California zoo is vying for the title of tallest bovine in the world. The Eureka Times Standards reported Wednesday the Holstein, named Danniel, measures 6 feet, 4 inches from the hoof to the withers, a smidge taller than the current record holder. A veterinarian and his keepers at the Sequoia Park Zoo in Eureka, California, measured Danniel Tuesday to confirm his height but Guinness World Record has yet to verify the measurement. According to the Guinness website, the tallest bovine ever was Blosom, a cow from Orangeville, Illinois, that measured 6 feet, 2 inches. Blosom died last year at the age of 13. Owner Ann Farley says Danniel is a gentle giant who loves hay and bread and acts like a puppy, trotting over to whoever calls his name.
