California Holstein, believed to be world’s tallest bovine, dies


Danniel, the California Holstein steer who was vying for the title of Guinness World Records tallest bovine has died. According to his owners, the beloved 6 foot 4 inch, 2,300-pound steer recently began displaying symptoms of calcium deficiency and couldn’t stand up or get around on his own.

Lost Coast Hay, who announced the news earlier this week on Facebook, said they plan to hold a memorial at some point for Danniel.

The current record holder is Blosom, who stood at 6 feet, 2 inches inches tall. Blosom died in 2015 at age 13. Guinness World Records had not yet confirmed Danniel’s record.
